There’s still time to support your local, community Theaters! Check out the recently-launched Kickstarter for the Vermillion Theater renovation project:
Betty Smith, Michelle Maloney and Bill Anderson of the Vermillion Downtown Cultural Association will join us to share the exciting project behind the collaborative efforts to renovate and run the Vermillion Theaters. The discussion will include how this project came about, and its relevance to other community development efforts.
Tuesday, October 13th, 2015 – 7 pm in the Kozak Community Room.
The non-profit association formed this year to invest in growing Vermillion’s downtown cultural attractions and relationship with the University of South Dakota and broader community, and to purchase the Coyote Twin and Vermillion Theaters on Main Street. The group has been raising funds in the community to accelerate renovations and to enhance the cinema experience in Vermillion.
“What we found when we began reaching out to partners such as the University of South Dakota and the Vermillion Chamber and Development Corporation (VCDC) was that everyone realized how important the theaters were for tying together this community, “says Ted Muenster, Vermillion Downtown Cultural Association Director. “Investing in purchasing the theaters and raising funds for renovation made sense to community leaders and helped us build momentum toward the purchase and – we hope, soon – a complete reimagining of the movie experience in Vermillion.”
This event is free and open to the public.
