The Town Hall Theatre Is Working Towards A Digital Conversion. . . . .We Need Your Help

In order to remain viable movie business The Town Hall Theatre (THT) needs to make the move for a conversion to a digital projection system. We have postponed it as long as we could (& saved many 1,000s of dollars in doing so) but the time has come. One film company has stopped releasing new movies on film and most others are severely limiting the number of prints made, so we have to wait longer to get movies and when we do get them they are sometimes in bad shape.

Our THT is about more than just movies: it is an anchor business for Quincy and place where the community comes together for performances, public meetings and where we see our friends and neighbors on stage. The movie business pays the facility expenses so that all this can happen.

Even at half the cost of what it once was, $70,000 it is a significant amount of money to raise. It will take much help and generosity to reach that target. We have had a heart-warming response from the community with people telling us how important the theatre is to them, offering great ideas to help and others standing at the ready to write checks. If you want to help, email
Donations will be gratefully accepted at the THT during movies, at Plumas Arts or by mail to P.O. Box 600, Quincy, CA 95971. All donations are fully tax-deductible.
