We are pleased as punch to have announced that a member of our community has stepped forward offering to buy our first digital projector. He will foot the bill for a brand new digital projector, valued at $60,000!
With the money raised so far through our seat sponsorship program, and donations from the community, this gift pushes us past the half way point of our first fundraising goal – $150,000 to digitize the existing auditorium. Those wonderful new seats shouldn’t sit empty while we search for 35mm prints! A digital projector will allow us to project brand new movies, as well as local productions, and host classic costume events.

To raise $75,000 in our community by May 1st.[/box]
$75,000 is a lot of money – but if those of us that can afford a $100-$250 donation step forward we can give the rest of the community a new versatile presentation venue by early summer.
Tax credits are available for donations made through the City of Nelson. Click here for more information.
