Eaton Theatre's 90th Anniversary Celebration

Leann Owen, owner of the Eaton Theatre since October 2018, is determined to get her movie theater through the financial crisis stemming from the Covid-19 pandemic.

56741069_1620588122456157_r.jpegLeann also had big plans for the Eaton Theatre's birthday this year. The Eaton Theatre is celebrating its 90th year of operation since opening its doors on January 7, 1931 and Leann is determined to see that the Eaton Theatre gets to celebrate 90 more.
56741069_1620588239410789_r.jpegLeann hopes to raise $20,000 to keep the Eaton Theatre's doors open through the rest of 2021. Donations made towards this goal will go directly towards paying the electric, heat, water, and other bills necessary to keep the doors open and allow us to continue to serve the community.
