Ryan & Kathryn;
Congratulations on the successful "Kickstarter" funding of your project to resurrect the Clover Theater, and also for the amazing (quick!) progress you've made so far. We look forward to your Grand opening Saturday morning.
We anxiously await the implementation of more of your great ideas, and also hope there is some way you can restore the “Real Flicks” program of the Cloverdale Arts Alliance, one of our favorite cultural activities.
Thank you for being “The Movies” back to Cloverdale. We wish you continued and sustained success.

Hello, Ryan & Kathryn. Heard the good news last night, but just got the chance to say "Congratulations!" and second all the heart-felt comments about our very special home town. No place like Cloverdale. No people like Cloverdalians. How lucky we are to have found them!
Congratulations Ryan and Kathryn for finding this terrific community and thanks for bringing it this latest spur to civic pride and great entertainment. And, I'm thinking, you haven't even seen the fiddle contest yet. You're going to love it, I'm sure. And the next time we visit, it's the movies!
Once again, our community has pulled together to accomplish something wonderful! Congratulations and thank you to everyone who's making this happen, especially Ryan and Kathryn, who dropped in on our Kiwanis board meeting this evening. I'm looking forward to having movies back in Cloverdale!
Congratulations to everyone who pledged; it added up to an extraordinary campaign and certainly brought attention to Cloverdale from all those outside donors. We're looking forward to seeing movies together and talking about them afterwards -- which is, by now, a Cloverdale tradition. So great!
Woohoo! You guys are awesome. Clarence and I will have to schedule another trip to visit once the movie theater is up and running. Living the dream!
Love your story. And your vision. And your guts.
Go Cloverdale! Go Clover Theater! Go Ryan and Kathryn!
Looking forward to more updates soon.
So glad to be a part of this community effort even if from afar. Congrats, Ryan & Kathryn!
Please, bring back murals (done by local artists) to the walls of theater. If only you were around before the tore down the California theater in Santa Rosa! Good Luck and prosperity to you!
You will build it and we will come!!! What a wonderful thing to happen, and now we need to support it by going to the movies.See you there. Carolyn Crandall, the moviegal
Ryan and Kathryn, I have followed your journey through my best friend, Doug Peterson. So glad to see you reach your goal. I'll be up to see the end result.
I'm so proud of you and Ryan. What an amazing thing you are doing for a great California community! I know you will do them proud! xoxox
So glad to help. We will make a trip over there sometime and meet you. Best of luck.

Now THIS is why I love my community so much--Cloverdale rocks!!! Thank you to everyone who is supporting this great project and THANK YOU, RYAN AND KATHRYN!!!
This is so exciting!!! Well done Cloverdale and for sure the goal will be met :-)
Me too Mia! I'm so happy for the Hechts and for Cloverdale. I love this town!
Love this campaign and love how the people in our town continue to join forces and support small businesses and our neighbors. This is the stuff that makes me proud to live in Cloverdale!
Cloverdale is a remarkable community. Just over $10,000 to go! When (not if) this project is a reality, it will be "our" theater in every sense of the word. Please contribute what you can and support this community-centric venture. Hats off to Ryan and Kathryn. I saw the sparkle in Ryan's eyes the first time we met. What a great addition to downtown Cloverdale.
We did it with the Rio Theater in Monte Rio, the Kuhn Theater in Lebanon OR, the Skyline Drive-in in Shelton WA, and the Towne Cinemas in Watertown WI, and I know WE CAN DO IT with the 'CLOVER THEATER' as well!!! Buy into your own local hometown place, why, you could even WALK to the movies! Pledge your support for a piece of history before it goes away................
They best way I can think to pledge my love to NORTHERN EXPOSURE. Plus ryan is pretty fantastic and would love him to be the dude that owns the theatre in my town. Alas NYC misses him but this small town just got a whole lot of character. Make him the dude that owns the movie theatre.
We are thrilled to have Ryan and Kathryn in Cloverdale and spear-heading this renaissance for our theatre.
OMG!! We're halfway there in one day!! Come on people! We can do this!!
Go Cloverdale! You can do it!
Gotta love this town! We are almost halfway to the goal of closing the gap, and that is great for the first day! We can do this! And then we'll have an upgraded movie theater, with an excellent visual experience, all sorts of films for every taste, and even a snack concession that we can love! Keep spreading the word, and we'll be there!!
It's so exciting to be part of this - even in a small way. It hasn't even been 21 hours yet and they are almost half way to their goal. If ever there was a "Genuinely Cloverdale" project, this is it!!!
Have you any video, photos etc showing come more of the theater?
C'mon Cloverdale. We can have our theater back...even better than before. Join us in this wonderful project.
These are two of the best people in the whole wide world. Please help them make this happen!
Thank you everyone for donating. Thank you Ryan and Kathryn for giving the community this chance to have a movie theater again! Let's do it!!!!!
