GRIMES FOUNDATION GRANT TO HELP BUY DIGITAL PROJECTION SYSTEM 8/1/2016
As you know, the Grimes Foundation has awarded us a $50,000 matching grant which will accelerate the GrandWorks Foundation’sobjective to purchase and install a digital projection system. With our vintage, operating 35mm projection and our new state-of-the-art digital projection, the Gloria can show all movies, new and old, as well as host many additional events.

We continue to raise funds toward this matching grant. Our Kickstarter campaign successfully concluded, raising an additional $10,000 toward it. We were very grateful to have actor Clancy Brown help us with that effort (you can catch Clancy most recently in the Coen brothers movie “Hail Caesar”). Perhaps once we get the digital equipment, we can have a Clancy Brown movie marathonat the theater!
