"Sail-In Cinema was a world-first with movies shown on a two-sided screen that was anchored to a barge in Lake Ontario. We came to Fresh Air Cinema (FAC) with a logistically complex event and they have risen the the challenge year after year. FAC has a team of consummate professionals who problem solve on the fly, provide great suggestions that improved the event and are just all around great people. FAC cares about their work, their clients and making an event the best that it can be. They are, in one word, FANTASTIC!"

"Thanks for a great 10 week summer series event! We received great feedback from all our partners and the neighborhood. FreshAirCinema were an amazing team to work with, and true partners in helping make the series a success."

"...we've had AWESOME feedback :) Everyone loved the event. In all the years I've been doing community events, I've never received so much unsolicited positive feedback. I've received a number of emails, staff have been stopped in the grocery store by people expressing their gratitude, and our CEO has received emails as well. People loved it. You guys were wonderful to work with. Thanks for all the tips and suggestions you gave me in advance of the show, they really helped in terms of pulling it together. The opportunity to air a short commercial about our name change and showcase our new logo was fantastic. The value of that opportunity, far exceeds any costs of the event that we incurred."

"The addition of FreshAirCinema to the events I coordinate has greatly increased general attendance, as well as creating a fascinating new dimension to our festivals. The experience of watching movies on an outdoor screen is reminiscent of drive-in theatres, and the crystal clear picture and sound is comparable to the finest indoor movie venues. The opportunity to have a gaming night on the enormous screens was the highlight of our summer festival, and an event that is still being talked about throughout the city! The FreshairCinema team are very supportive and easy to work with. They answered any questions I had, and offered support with every detail of planning. The attention to detail and their dedication to customer service is top-notch. FreshairCinema has such a unique and versatile product, and I would recommend this company to anyone looking to create a memorable event in their community!"

“Our Outdoor Movie night, ‘Cinema Under the Stars’, held in Kelowna this past August was a HUGE success! The feedback we received was outstanding!
We have had many people ask us if we are going to make this event an annual affair in Kelowna, and I have proudly responded with "Absolutely!" On behalf of the Canadian Cancer Society, and the Kelowna Relay For Life Committee, I would like to thank FreshAirCinema for bringing their gigantic inflatable movie screen to our city, and allowing us to put on such a great show as a thank you to our volunteers, our donors, and the community for their support this past year. This is the largest outdoor event that we have ever held, and we are so happy that it was such a great experience for all who attended! A special thank you also goes to the hardworking and knowledgeable staff at FreshAirCinema for their guidance with planning for this event - it was an absolute pleasure working with you! We look forward to putting on more of these events in the years to come!”

”When our company first heard of the idea of having movies under the stars, millions of visions ran through our heads! Living in the Rocky Mountains, we couldn't think of a better venue for such an event. A few phone calls away, and what felt like only days later, our amazing visions became a reality! Living in such a transient, multicultural town, it is difficult to throw an event that will be enjoyed by the entire community...we were thrilled, when FreshAirCinema was able to deliver just that! It felt like the entire community came together to eat popcorn, cuddle up under a blanket and enjoy a movie under the stars with the Rocky Mountains In the backdrop. Actually, as an organizer, this was probably the first time that I got to actually sit back and enjoy. I was super impressed with how the FreshAirCinema team came in, set up, and ran the entire event without any difficulty at all! The sound was fantastic, the picture couldn't have been better, and the crowd couldn't have been more content. I STILL have people thanking me for organizing the event and asking when we will be able to host the next one! We couldn't have received a better product than we did with FreshAirCinema. Thanks for turning moments into fantastic memories for the community of Lake Louise! We look forward to having you back in 2008!!!”

“FreshAirCinema made the event planning for our 40th Anniversary Community Celebration so much easier! The courtesy and professionalism given over the phone helped me to take care of the details and removed so much of the stress in planning a large event. Our association was assured of good service and that is exactly what was received. The service provided was timely, and the quipment was state of the art with good visibility, a large screen and excellent sound. The team at FAC is knowledgeable of licensing requirements and movie availability, and they came through on their commitment. The feedback from our community residents was nothing short of outstanding! Our Association looks forward to dealing with FreshAirCinema for future events!”

"Park Royal Shopping Centre hosted FreshAirCinema for a Drive-In movie (on the top of our parkade). It was a tremendous success, we filled our parkade with excited movie goers, we were delighted by the comments that we received from customers praising the centre for our efforts to bring a drive in movie to the community. The FreshAirCinema staff were professional and dedicated to the success of the movie.”

"The Heartland Credit Union contracted the services of FreshAirCinema for the past two years. We were looking to develop a community event of uniqueness. When we heard about FreshAirCinema and what they could do, we were sold on the idea. Hence our "Movie in the Park" was born. FreshAirCinema delivered a professional high quality performance, with up-to-date technology, giving our audience that great outdoor theatre experience. With hearing many positive comments from the 2,500 plus attended viewers, the Heartland Credit Union would not hesitate to contract with FreshAirCinema in the future."

"I just wanted to quickly say thank you sincerely!!!! Last night was a huge success for us! We raised almost $2000 last and I can't thank you enough!!! Everyone was so impressed with you guys! I think my father in law was most impressed with how quiet your generator was (haha) but you truly were amazing! There were a lot of pictures taken throughout the day, and night and I'II make sure you get a disk if you'd like. Again, I can't thank you enough! P.S. loved the pre-movie!!! It was perfect!!!!"
WEEKEND TO END BREAST CANCER - AJAX, ON
"Everything was fantastic. The crew was incredibly professional and relaxed. We had one moment well before the movie started when the screen started to deflate. The guys tell me it was because a little girl came along and unplugged something! (Which is too funny.) Good turnout. Maybe 800 people. It was a cold night which I think would have reduced our numbers quite a bit. Overall a success. I look forward to seeing the photos that the crew took."

"I cannot rave enough about the work your team has done for us. This was an amazing event, and something our team had never done before. I thank you and your team immensely for helping to make it run as well and as smoothly as it did. In particular, your pre-show guy was a phenomenon. He put up with me until the bitter end, and I cannot be more delighted with the end result. People were blown away by the pre show, and some were especially delighted to see themselves on the big screen. I can't say enough about the crew guys as well. From setup to saving us by having a copy of the film when mine broke, we were good to go. They also took some amazing photos of the event, and what a fabulous touch to have them on a flash drive! Let me tell you, we were all impressed. We are looking at doing the event again next year! I think the most important thing I can say is that I would be happy to refer people to your team. Thank you so very much!"
NORTH BAY & DISTRICT CHAMBER OF COMMERCE – NORTH BAY, ON
"I just wanted to pass along how extremely impressed and happy we were with the customer service. I also wanted to pass along to you how much we appreciated how well you handled things at the event and when little problems arose you were all about fixing the problem rather than caring whose fault it was. It meant a lot! Bottom line this client is very happy. Good work everyone!"
CANADIAN CANCER SOCIETY - PORT DOVER, ON
"Last night was GREAT! Everyone LOVED it! It was more than anyone expected! I actually have a few other real estate agents in my office who were going to steal my movie night idea .... I am sure they will be in touch with you very soon to set something up!"

"The event was amazzzzzzzing! The weather co-operated, the feedback from everyone attending was great and your staff was great and very pleasant to work with.

"It was quite fantastic - the set up guys were great and all went quite smoothly. Overall it was a great event! Thank you for yours & your team's great work."
KINCARDINE BIA - KINCARDINE, ON
"Mother Nature was in our favor last night! We had a "sprinkle" of rain prior to the movie, but that didn't stop people from coming, and nobody left. What an experience doing it outdoors... we had about 600 or so? It was truly a great experience, and one that we are definitely interested in doing next year! I can't express enough how much we enjoyed this event, even despite a few hiccups along the way re: the location search. It's ALL worth it in the end, especially when people come up to you and are personally thanking you for putting on the event for their family... just great! And again big thanks to your crew! They pretty much "talked me off the ledge" yesterday when we were hesitant of the forecast, and then it turned out to be a great night! If you have a post-event survey or anything, or if you're looking for a testimonial, I'd be happy to provide one!"
