GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) -- It's paying off for the city of Grand Rapids to show free film screenings at a downtown park during the summer.

Downtown Grand Rapids Inc. on Wednesday released its economic report on the popular series.

Ah-nab-awen Park hosted six movies this summer. The screenings brought in $664,000 to the downtown Grand Rapids economy.

The series generated more than $400 for each dollar the city spent to produce the Movies in the Park events, and attendance was up 67 percent from last year.
