The big screen is coming back to Albany

December 16, 2004

Albany - If you go out to enjoy the ice skating rink in downtown Albany this weekend, you'll get to watch a movie on the big screen. Midwest Displays, the company responsible for the new lights and ice rink, is showing movies.

"He just surprised us. He's like a Jolly Ole' Elf," said Lorie Farkas with Water, Gas, and Light. The owner of Midwest Display, Mike Howard, is bringing in a huge 30 by 50 foot screen and playing movies each night this weekend.

"He'll be showing a family oriented movie Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. We want to encourage everybody to come down. While your child's skating, you can watch the movie, have some popcorn and hot chocolate."

You'll need hot chocolate, since temperatures will be low, very low! But, cold weather didn't stop Tabitha Sizemore and her students from enjoying a day on the ice. She doesn't think chilly nights with keep people from coming out.

"They were packed for the Christmas parade, and it was freezing then. So I think people will show up," said Sizemore.

Midwest Displays was hired to turned Albany into a Winter Wonderland with lights,"Everything's up and everything's burning," said Farkas. And, ice skating, "This is the second time I've been this week," said skater Haley Fulford. "It was fun, I busted my butt a couple of times with my friends."

Now, the company hopes you'll bundle up, bring some friends, and enjoy a holiday surprise. The movies will air Friday, Saturday, and Sunday around 6:00PM at the Riverfront Park.
