From Vista Today

Just a week into its Building Improvement ChallengeThe Colonial Theatre is already halfway to its goal of raising $10,000 in 60 days. Striving for a deadline of Mar. 27 (World Theatre Day), the theatre is still taking donations to help get to the finish line.

One of The Colonial Theatre’s loyal donors, who wishes to remain anonymous, has challenged supporters to donate to the Building Improvement Fund, and all gifts will be matched dollar for dollar up to $10,000.

These essential funds will double all contributions and finance urgent projects in The Colonial’s two historic buildings, ensuring a safe and beautiful venue for years to come. All donations are fully tax-deductible and directly support restoration projects in the historic Colonial Theatre.

Learn more about The Colonial Theatre — one of the region’s premiere independent arts destinations — and how the iconic theatre, a donor and member-supported nonprofit, operates three distinct venues and multiple event spaces in two adjoining historic buildings and attracts more than 70,000 patrons per year to its eclectic programming of popular, new movies, beloved film favorites, live music, comedy, and community events.
