In today’s editorial, I mention a “crowd-funding” campaign to save Eatonville’s Roxy Theater. The owner is trying to raise $20,000 toward the $70,000 cost of converting to digital projection.

So far the online campaign hasn’t gotten much steam. As of Friday, only $1,040 had been raised. The deadline is Jan. 14.

If you’re interested, here’s the Kickstarter.com site. Eatonville’s Dispatch has an article on the status of the overall campaign; to read it, click here.
