Longmont Girl Scouts and Community Cinema Partner for Black History Month

 

Community Cinemas (CommCi) and Girl Scout Troop 3010 from Longmont have announced a partnership for Black History Month. Each Friday in February, CommCi, a new youth-led nonprofit in Longmont, will present a series of drive-in movies that offer a safe opportunity to build community, and support local industry.

Girl Scout Troop 3010 will offer the ability for patrons to order Girl Scout Cookies for delivery to the vehicle. Proceeds from the ticket sales will support the County Collective, El Comite, CIRC, and various other local nonprofits.

Girl Scout Troop 3010 is made up of 18 Cadettes from sixth – eighth grades from a variety of local schools. The girls are currently working on the Girl Scout Silver Award, the highest honor a Cadette can achieve. The girls will dedicate at least 50 hours on a project that addresses a problem and supports local organizations. Silver Award teams are working with Veteran’s Puppy For Life, Medicine Horse, Yola’s Pet Rescue, Attention Homes, Little Libraries, and creating women’s empowerment patch for Girl Scouts.

The series will feature “Blazing Saddles” on February 5; a double feature Girl Power evening with “The Princess and the Frog” followed by “Hidden Figures” on February 12; “Moana” on February 19; and “Black Panther” on February 26. CommCi provides a fun and safe environment for communities to come together while supporting local restaurants, nonprofits, and providing a fun learning environment.

CommCi is an all-in-one dinner with a movie pop up, providing the community a safe way to come together. Partnering nonprofits will receive 10% of the day’s revenue, in an effort to support their mission.

Tickets are $31/per car and includes warming mechanisms. Patrons also have the option to purchase full meals via restaurant vendors (Georgia Boys BBQ and La Vita Bella), snacks, and beverages are also available for purchase. For the month of February, patrons can receive Girl Scout Cookies delivered to their vehicle as well.
