The Picture above is resurrected from our city's archives. After being closed for decades the Pine Theater was purchased, renovated and reopened to a thankful public in 2007. Now the Hollywood film industry is doing away with the old way of showing films, everything will now be digital. Converting to the $80,000 system may not be difficult for the large chains but seems almost impossible to our local small town owners. It's been a financial struggle for them just to keep the theater open. The community appreciates having this inexpensive and historic source of entertainment and many are doing what they can to help. There are many creative ways to donate, the most successful being the Walk of Fame. Horseshoes engraved with the name of the donor are being sold for $400.00 each and will be cemented into the entry below the marquis. That's a great idea but Erin had a good one of her own. Enter the big guns.
Check out this amazing campaign to save our beloved theater.
Yesterday I gave you our bad news. Today I happily offer you the good news. A handful of our home schooled littles with the help of some of our home schooled biggles raised $213.33! And all in just over two hours. That's how it's done folks. Just $40,000 more to go.
