OAK GROVE, La. (Holland Entertainment LLC) - Fiske Theatre in Oak Grove, has announced it will be broadcasting the live coverage of the Inauguration of President Elect Donald J. Trump on the screen of the largest screen in Northeast Louisiana. Doors will open at 9:00 AM.
“As a company we try to remain apolitical when it comes to state and national politics,” Holland Entertainment President Adam Holland said. “This is in no way our indorsement of President Elect Trump, we are just providing a service to the many citizens of West Carroll Parish who supported Mr. Trump want to witness this event as a community. It is always our goal to be an active part in our community and this is one way we can do that.”
Holland also serves as Mayor of Oak Grove.
There will be no admission charged for the event, however the concession stand will be open and donations to help off-set the cost of hosting the event will be accepted.
“It is costing our company around $300 to host this event when you add the cost of cable, technical assistance to get the projector reset to project live TV broadcast, utilities and staff. We had one donor from Colorado who requested to remain anonymous who donated $50 to off-set the cost of cable connection.” Holland said.
Doors to the theatre will open at 9 am and coverage will play continually until around 2 pm. The actual inauguration will take place at 11 am Central, 12 noon Eastern.
“We have no idea how many people will take advantage of this opportunity, we hope our local schools will bring their students and invite everyone to come out and celebrate the peaceful transition of power that is so unique to our great nation. No matter your political affiliation this tradition that takes place every four years is something we should celebrate.” Mayor Holland said.
