The Everett Cultural Council is pleased to announce that the installation of a movie theatre trellis – measuring 10 feet tall – has been completed at Wehner Park. The concept for an outdoor movie theatre came to mind in 2020 as a creative response to social distancing.
Thank you to the Everett Cultural Council for sponsoring the project, Mayor Carlo DeMaria’s office for their coordination, and Everett DPW for the labor and installation. Special thanks to Director of Public Grounds and Maintenance Andy Hunt for his attention to detail.
The theatre at Wehner Park stretches over the path, allowing people to walk through it, giving it an additional interactive element. Flowering vines have already been planted along the posts and will grow throughout the fall. The screen is detachable, transforming the structure into a theatre for community movie nights. Residents are encouraged to use it to display their own projects.
