The Lyric Cinema is at risk closing down unless we can upgrade to digital projection equipment now necessary in the movie industry.
2,324 backers pledged $158,692 to help bring this project to life.

More Pledge Matching!

We got to two round milestones last night on the Save the Lyric campaign. First, we surpassed 1,000 donors. Awesome. Second, we surpassed $70,000 in donations. Double Awesome! And for the awesome trifecta, another anonymous donor offered to match pledges from noon until 8pm today (up to $2000)!

If you've been putting off pledging, today's the day to do it! You can also increase your pledge and this will count toward the dollar-for-dollar matching this generous donor is offering. Spread the word to your friends and share on Facebook! And remember, we love you all!!!

      We managed to raise over $8,000 today, in large part because of this pledge matching!!!

      Ann 2, that totally defeats the purpose. If you want to help the matching and have already pledged, the best way to do it would be pledge more.

      Actually, Ann, you can. Go to my backer history under your profile then cancel and repledge. I did the same, to maximize the match.

      I don't think you'll need to Ann. I'm 100% positive that we'll be able to cover the $2000 in the 8 hours the matching is going on. Good thought though! Thanks for supporting the Lyric!

      Can I take back my pledge and then re-pledge now so that it can be matched? Geez, I feel like I should have waited so that I didn't miss out on some awesome matching thingy!
