Drafthouse Staff Fund

As many of you already know both Drafthouse locations were forced to close due to COVID-19 for an unknown period of time.  Letting ALL staff go was one of the most difficult decisions ownership has had to make considering we have had staff employed six, seven and even twelve years! We held out hope that our Business Interruption insurance would  cover the losses so we could keep everyone employed, but unfortunately, our claim was denied.  Many of you have reached out sharing incredible memories, first dates and private events asking how you can help.   Help us help our staff and 100% of the money raised here will go directly to the staff for assistance during this unfortunate time.  Thank you to all of our long time customers and a HUGE thank you to our staff!! #SmallBusinessRelief   #showlove
