The fund raiser for equipment needed to keep this theater in business will be in jest if they don't clean it up and give it a good scrubbing and deoderizing is much in need. I stopped going years ago because it's filth.

This has been coming for years. The operator should have been saving for the new projectors.

They want everyone to spend local and not take their money out of town but I've not been in that theatre in years because its nasty, it stinks and the quality is pathetic, it's been like that for a long time and no one has cared enough to do anything to better the business and bring in more money but now they want to "fundraise" and have everyone else pay for new digital projectors, I don't think so, not this chick anyway and by the way new projectors are not gonna clean it up and help the smell, it will still be the same old run down pathetic place and everyone will still go out of town just to catch a flick!!!!

They're not even on Kickstarter. Makes me wonder if Kickstarter rejected them because they're not a new business/project.

This is good that he accepted that this is a sham. He should have taken care of his theatre, put money into it to keep it at least clean and decent, but instead he let it go to ruin and then asked the community to fix his mistakes. I'm glad he is calling it what it is.

As a business owner when I need to up grade me computer equipment , which is every 2-4 years I either use money set aside or take out a business loan, I don't ask my custermers to help me buy the tools that feed my family and pad my wallet, this is the stupidest thing I've ever heard.

Thank God they came to their senses! Let someone who knows how to run a business open a new theater.

I'm going to be on kickstarter to raise funds I need to buy a b210 and a bird. I need the money now as kick starter only deals in money, but save that bag full of jewelry you got from your aunt. I can take it later I can be found near Burger King.

I agree, bless his heart I can't help to feel bad for the guy, when I was a teen that was the place to go on the weekends and he was always sweet to me and my friends, never told on us for leaving and coming back to be picked up by our parents lol. Towards the end it was like the younger kids were taking over, ruining the movie with loud mouths, throwing food I remember the cops coming in a few times telling them to calm down, that's why I stopped going years ago

Why do they not take out a loan or refinance instead of letting the public pay for it

b4 u donate listen to this. i know some1 who was helping these ppl by doing free internet work for them. the owner refuses to use any of his own money to upgrade his equip. why should we donate to them if he does not want to stay open? not the best place n the world either, to see a movie. i can remember going to see the crow there, movie tore up, and he refused to refund or rain check anyone that was there. hate to see the place go, but maybe somebody new is what it needs.
