Oh, missed Donna's comment - stretch goal is handicapped accessibility!
Agreed. Tell everyone what the extra money will be used for. New carpet? Free kid shows for a year? A bonus for employees (who have a lot to do with how much people like the business)?
Need to get stretch goals announced so people know what they're buying!
OMG!! How did we make it from $83k to $102k practically overnight?! AWESOME!!!
You guys rock!
Yaayyyyy!! Congratulations UMT—you are obviously well loved!

Congrats!! Have lived in Fairfax for most of the past 20 years, but this is the first time I felt like it was really a "community" - that was worth the donation all by itself! Great job, Mr. Collings!
Now for some stretch goals - and maybe a different pledge level - since it's a family theater, how about family packages of tickets or season passes, or etc? (I bring five along with me as a group when we go see our movies! :) )
Here's an idea - you could have "Collings Cash" - works the same as cash at your theater and you can give booklets of it for pledging additional money. :)
Again, great job, and so happy to be able to contribute!
Wonderful! Now, at one of the pledge club meetings you told us that you would make a "veritable palace" if you exceeded the $100k goal. So maybe not a palace, but could you give us an idea of additional things you would do so we have a new target to shoot at over the next 9 days?
FANTASTIC!!! I'm so glad for you and happy to be a part of it!
YAY for the little Kickstarter engine that could!!
Awesome!! I too have been watching this since the beginning and saw at 97K last night. Was hoping today was going to be the day.
Mazel Tov! I've never been to your theater and live hundreds of miles away, so I doubt I'll ever visit in the future, but I love your spirit. Best of luck to all of you!
This is a fantastic neighborhood theater, was there with my grand kids this week. Soooo glad they made their goal, I knew they would. We all have to join hands and made sure they stay in business. If you haven't been there, go, you can't beat their prices and the employees are so nice.
Hip, hip, HOORAY! Congratulations!
I think Ian is right about outlining the stretch goals.
Congrats on meeting your minimum!
WOW!!! Congrats! Ive been following this (and donated) obsessively like it was a TV show! I'm so HAPPY FOR YALL! BUTTS ARE SAVED -- what a great day.
Awesome!! =) Congrats!
Are there stretch goals? (Hi! Broken record here!)
