The Arts Council would like to thank all the volunteers who help bring this series to the only movie house in Sierra County. This includes Arts Council Board Co-President Cracker Eshleman who researches movies for the series and assists in purchase of supplies, pre-screening, and whose effort assures we show quality films that will appeal to our local audience. Cracker also manages the Arts Council website Event Calendar to keep everyone aware of all Arts Council events including Movie Nights. We are especially grateful to Greg Bostrom who has labored tirelessly and with great enthusiasm for many years to help improve and maintain the movie experience at The Yuba Theatre. Thank you also to Tim Jordan who has been helping with technical support for recent upgrades to sound and screen.
The Arts Council, who manages and maintains the building which is owned by Sierra County, is also excited to announce that soon we will be installing a new electronic movie screen. We are grateful for a grant from The Bill Graham Foundation which has supported the Movie Night series for many years. This year the Foundation generously granted the Arts Council additional funding to jump start the purchase of the new screen. The Arts Council is also grateful for two anonymous donors who have contributed funding to purchase the new screen. The new screen will improve the visual experience and allow for expanded use of the theatre during the busy tourist season, allowing for quick change from movie venue to performing arts venue. Movie Night flyers which list all the movies and short synopses are available in front of The Yuba Theatre or in The Yuba Gallery.
Step into the past and enjoy a movie with friends and family at The Yuba Theatre this summer. The popcorn with real butter is delicious too! Information: www.sierracountyartscouncil.org or call 530-289-9822. Sierra County Arts Council is State-Local Partner with the California Arts Council.
