IT'S A WRAP! FREE SUMMER MOVIE SERIES HEADING TO ROSEBURG

U.S. Cellular Movies in the Park Begins June 6 at Stewart Park

ROSEBURG, Ore., April 1, 2009 – Warm summer nights at Stewart Park will come alive in June with a family-friendly series of movies sponsored by U.S. Cellular. The movies start at dusk and various pre-show activities begin at 7:30 on the evenings of June 6, 13, 19 and 26.

"This is a great opportunity for everyone in the city to connect and enjoy a little bit of Hollywood for free," said Roseburg Mayor Larry Rich. "Following on the success of the Movies in the Park in other communities across the Northwest, we wanted to work with U.S. Cellular to bring the same excitement and family atmosphere to our residents."

The free movies are open to all ages and families are encouraged to bring blankets or lawn chairs, along with food and drink (alcohol is not permitted) and enjoy a fun summer evening at the movies.

U.S. Cellular supports similar movie nights in four cities across the Northwest. Six years ago, the company launched its first movie series in the region with Movies in the Park in Medford. Movies in the Park in Pendleton, Ore. and Movies on the River in Kennewick, Wash. followed two years later. All three movie series return this summer as well as the launch of a new series in Ashland.

"We're looking forward to bringing everyone in the community together for free family-friendly entertainment," said Heather Owens, director of sales for U.S. Cellular in Oregon.

The 9,000 associates of U.S. Cellular believe a wireless phone enhances people's lives and a wireless company should be in the business of bringing people together. U.S. Cellular has a wide range of monthly plans, including those with unlimited nationwide calling, unlimited free incoming calls and options to prepay. The company has a growing catalog of phones like the BlackBerry® Pearl and Curve, and the touch-screen Samsung Delve, which offer e-mail and Web access. Based in Chicago, U.S. Cellular is the nation's fifth-largest full-service wireless carrier, serving 6.2 million customers across the country.
