Request to Use Byrnes Lake Landing and the Bicentennial Park Grounds for Overnight Camping and a Movie Screening Event “On Set Cinema”





The County Administrator has received a request from Mr. Kenny Caperton from Hillsborough, North Carolina (see attached email request), for the following:


1) Utilize the County-owned Byrnes Lake Landing site for a movie screening event, “On Set Cinema,” on November 12, 2021, and November 13, 2021, for approximately three (3) hours after sunset; and


2) The use of Bicentennial Park grounds for overnight camping and an additional movie viewing event November 12, 2021, and November 13, 2021. 


Mr. Caperton operates a project, “On Set Cinema,” where movies are shown all over the country at their actual filming locations.  Byrnes Lake Landing was one of the filming sites for the movie “Friday the 13th” and Mr. Caperton is hoping to hold the event at Byrnes Lake Landing for that reason.  


The event would be a for-profit event with a maximum of 50 people attending who would buy tickets from Mr. Caperton to participate.


Approval of the request is contingent upon Mr. Caperton providing the County with a certificate of liability insurance that meets County requirements prior to the event taking place.  If approved, Mr. Caperton has a standard facility agreement used for these events which would be included in the resulting agenda action item along with the certificate of liability insurance.
