The Town Hall Theatre Is Working Towards A Digital Conversion. . . . .We Need Your Help
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
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 email@example.com
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.

DOLPHIN TALE 2 plays 4 days, FRIDAY to MONDAY: October 24th to 27th
Dolphin Tale 2 continues the story of the brave dolphin Winter, whose miraculous rescue and recovery—thanks to a groundbreaking prosthetic tail—made her a symbol of hope and perseverance to people around the world and inspired the 2011 family hit movie Dolphin Tale. It has been several years since young Sawyer Nelson (Nathan Gamble) and the dedicated team at the Clearwater Marine Hospital, headed by Dr. Clay Haskett (Harry Connick, Jr.), rescued Winter. With the help of Dr. Cameron McCarthy (Morgan Freeman), who developed a unique prosthetic tail for the injured dolphin, they were able to save her life. Yet their fight is not over. Winter’s surrogate mother, the very elderly dolphin Panama, has passed away, leaving Winter without the only poolmate she has ever known. However, the loss of Panama may have even greater repercussions for Winter, who, according to USDA regulations, cannot be housed alone, as dolphins’ social behavior requires them to be paired with other dolphins. Time is running out to find a companion for her before the team at Clearwater loses their beloved Winter to another aquarium.
