PSA ~ Vashon Theatre Tile Fundraiser

April 8th, 2022 by VoV

Know what May 30th is? Besides Memorial Day? Well, it’s the seventy-fifth Anniversary for the Vashon Theatre. Yessir. Top of the Vashon’s Favorite Places List. So much love around that unique building. Watching a movie there is not just watching a movie, it’s probably the best Experience you’ll have all week. Well, now the Vashon Theatre needs your help to survive. After being knocked to its knees by the pandemic and struggling against huge changes in the movie industry, the need to expand became obvious. Enter Tom Bangasser with a Jumbotron for the parking lot. Outdoor screenings! How about a beer garden? How about a cool setting for family and community activities? Great ideas. But where’s the funding coming from? Well, you, that’s where. The Theatre is selling 1,000 tiles in their entry way engraved with your name or the name of a loved one or a memorial for the recently departed. One tile is $150, two tiles for $280, four tiles (one square foot) $550. The drive ends on May 17th, so better hustle your donation right now. Just go to vashontheater.com and do as you’re told. Make your name part of the continued history of one of the world’s last best places: the Vashon Theatre.
