Theater Fund Raising Reaches $66,000

November 4, 2011

This week our movie is “Real Steel”. It’s described as a gritty white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future where the sport of boxing has gone high-tech. Hugh Jackman stars as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000 pound, 8 foot tall steel robots took over the ring. As a small time promoter he earns just enough money piecing together low end bots from scrap metal. When he hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max to build and train a championship contender. As the stakes in the brutal, no holds barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback. “Champions aren’t born. They’re made.” Our fundraiser for digital/3D is still going strong. Raffle tickets are for sale in the lobby at the theater and all of the board members have a supply. Don’t miss out on your chance at winning the handmade quilt. If you haven’t sent in your pledge or donation, you can still do so. Help us reach the $80,000 goal. The holidays are invading the City Centre. Halloween has past, Thanksgiving is around the corner, and our Festival of Trees is beginning to be set up. If you have an idea for a Christmas tree that you would like to show off, pick up a sign up sheet at the theater. I’ll see you at the movies!
