1) As mentioned in the video, our goal is $48,000. This is exactly half of the cost of the fabrication of just the awning portion of the marquee. We would love to raise even more to offset the tens of thousands of dollars that went into the design of the marquee, the upgrades to the building and electrical that we have already paid for and the ongoing maintenance and lightbulb replacement. (There are 1200 bulbs just in the lower marquee!!) All of the money raised through Kickstarter will be used only for the marquee.
2) Great rewards! You still have a chance to get tickets and popcorn for our 2014 Film Series, memberships, private showings and advertising for your business on the big screen.
3) Bragging rights! When you come to the theatre with your friends, you can say "I helped make this beautiful marquee happen!" It's a chance to be part of something exciting, historic and great for the city of Centralia!
Risks and challenges
The fundraising is the biggest risk and challenge for this project. We have already raised $48,000 in donations and need $48,000 more. The marquee is currently being fabricated so the worst thing that could happen is that we could not afford to take delivery when it is ready in December. There is no going back now!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
