Morris is lucky to have a wonderful art deco movie theatre from the 1940’s that is still a single screen first run theatre. It went up for sale this summer, and there were concerns that we might lose our cinema. Happily, a group came together on fairly short notice (essentially over the weekend) that was able to make a successful offer on the theatre.
As one might guess from the photo, the theatre could use some rennovation, and some creative changes to the business model wouldn’t hurt either. Still, I was extremely impressed by the group’s enthusiasm for saving the theatre, and the creative energy at the meetings over the weekend.
People asked WeatherGirl to be on the Board of Directors for the theatre, but the fact that we’re leaving the country for a year in three weeks kind of killed that :-). We’re probably going to be setting up a web site for them, so I ran out and took a bunch of photos of the theatre, including this.No tag for this post.
