This old movie theater was restored and opened just less than 8 years ago. What am I missing here since movie screens don’t go bad that quickly?

We are so grateful for this generous contribution to help keep the quality of the facility and programs high for our community! Clarification for Mr. Huffstutler: the building was renovated by the 2903 Q St. LLC, a separate entity from the Robinson Theater Community Arts Center non-profit that runs out of the facility. The non-profit was very grassroots when we started in 2009 with very limited resources. We were blessed by a donated and used pull-down screen at the time that has been great. It has reached it’s “pull-down” limit and barely rolls back up at this point. Due to increased use of the facility, we are ecstatic to have received this grant to keep the quality of the facility high and more opportunities to use for movies and other events. Please feel free to reach out to me directly if you have any questions at all (562-9133 or bhart@robinsontheater.org). Thank you again!
