Our beloved Cinema Theater at the corner of South Clinton and Goodman is currently seeking funds to perform the mandatory upgrade to digital. They are asking the public to help offset this $70,000 undertaking. You can contribute any amount from $1 up, but they are offering the following perks:
A $20 donation gets you a movie pass and a popcorn
A $75 donation gets you 10 movie passes, a drink, and a popcorn.
Even with the donation, these prices are STILL lower than the multiplexes. Let’s ensure that this venerable institution continues to thrive in our community.
