The City of Largo presents outdoor movies on an inflatable screen all around town through the Largo Cultural Center. One outdoor cinema event you won't want to miss is "Flick n Float": a dive-in movie at Southwest Pool. The last screening is this Friday, so don't miss it! They will be showing Madagascar 2
at sundown. The pool is located at 13120 Vonn Road, Largo.
But if you can't make it this Friday, no worries: Largo uses their outdoor cinema equipment and inflatable screen all over the place. The purchase of the equipment was sponsored by Brighthouse for Largo community events. Events usually gather between 400 and 2,000 people, depending on the event. Don Short, along with two assistants, manages the set-up and tear-down of the equipment. You'll see him at outdoor film screenings all over town. He's not afraid of taking on challenges. "One of my biggest [challenges] was during a Family Movie Night at Central Park about three years ago. We were showing a Robin Williams movie. The humidity was so intense the lens on the projector kept fogging. I literally sat next to the projector all night and every three minutes, whenever I thought nobody would notice, I'd take a cloth and wipe off the lens", he says (St. Petersburg Times
). So for all your open air cinema needs, you're in good hands.
