MiP Sponsors 2018

Dear Members of the Local Business Community:

Movies in the Park has been a free Davis family fun event since 2006. In 2011, when the City no longer had the budget to present the event, the Davis Sunset Rotary Club stepped up to the plate to continue the tradition. With the help of our many volunteers and sponsors, we now host Movies in the Park at no cost to the City, or to the audience. However, there are many costs associated with organizing and hosting this event, so your sponsorship is essential to continue this community tradition.

Movies in the Park is free to all, and 2018 promises to be the best yet with a collection of hard to get blockbuster movies. The event has grown in popularity over the past several years, attracting over 1,500 people throughout the season. We have also significantly improved the movie picture and sound quality with the addition of a state of the art LCD projector and a QSC sound system.

The four movies that we are screening this year were carefully chosen to be family friendly, exciting and FUN. This year’s movies are:

Aug 25th        Despicable Me 3
Sept 8th          Cars 3
Sept 15th        Coco
Sept 22nd       Star Wars: The Last Jedi

As a Movies in the Park sponsor, your business will be included on the website, our banner, and 5,000 promotional fliers that will be distributed at the Davis Farmers Market from August through the end of the series.

We have simplified our sponsorships this year to two Sponsorship types:

Gold: $600 or $1,000 in-kind

  • Your slide on giant movie screen 6X before each movie, viewed by 500 attendees on average each night
  • Logo Displayed on our website on the Movies in the Park page and our social media
  • Logo on over 5,000 promotional materials for the season
  • Logo printed on 4′ x 4′ banner along with other Gold Sponsors
  • Ability to set up a 10’x10’ tent during movies (with advanced approval from Davis Sunset Rotary)
  • Community appreciation for continuing this Davis tradition

Digital: $100

  • Company name, written out in text, on a sign by our snack bar
  • Company name, written out in text, our website on the Movies in the Park page
  • Community appreciation for continuing this Davis tradition

By supporting the Davis Sunset Rotary Club’s Movies in the Park program, each sponsor will not only contribute to a fun family night in Central Park, but will also help to support future Davis Sunset Rotary Club projects.

Thank you! For more information, please contact mip@sunsetrotarydavis.org.


How do I secure a spot for sponsorship?
You will just need to make sure we have a check from you made out to Sunset Rotary Club of Davis. Gold Sponsors will also need to provide a PowerPoint slide and have their logo submitted to us by the deadline of July 1st. The PowerPoint slide can be submitted up until the first movie, yet the logo is needed earlier. Your company logo is due no later than July 15, so that we can make sure we have time to add you to the flyers before we send them out to print for distribution at the Davis Farmers Market.

Must sponsors design their own advertisement slide for the screen?
Yes. The best way is to create a slide in PowerPoint (Widescreen format, 16:9) and submit it to us, since that’s what we’ll be using to show it. Otherwise, we should also be able to work with other artwork that is 11″x8.5″ landscape format as long as the quality is high enough. If you are not sure if something will work, feel free to contact us at mip@sunsetrotarydavis.org.

What format should my logo be when I submit it?
The preferred format, for best quality prints, is Vector. That includes extension such as .ai (Adobe Illustrator), .eps, .pdf, .svg, .pdf.

What additional info will Bronze Sponsors need to provide?
Bronze sponsors names will just be writing in text on the sign by the snack bar as well as our Website. They will just need to confirm how they would like it written out.

Any additional questions may be submitted to mip@sunsetrotarydavis.org or your contact in Sunset Rotary Davis. Thank you!
