The Radford Theatre - The Third Act

Support us as Radford Theater's next owners.

As local filmmakers and movie enthusiasts we have the passion and vision to write the next story for the Radford Theater.  

Our vision is to not only upgrade the theater to the necessary digital technology to keep it sustainable, but bring changes that will increase its place in the New River Valley cultural arts community.

We're not quitting our day jobs.  We just want to keep the theater open.  Funding will include the upgrade needed to digital technology.  Your support will help ensure a seamless transfer of ownership and all assets from the current owner to us.  This will keep the doors open and the film light on when he plans to leave at the end of April.  Our vision also includes renovations to open the balcony and your support will help make that happen as well.

A vision for the future.  Keeping the theater open is not our only goal.  Live events.  Increased viewing times and matinees.  Credit card sales.  If you've followed the story of the theater's closing, then you have heard of the possibilities.  One of our goals would be to bring a weekend long film festival to the New River Valley. We have dreamed about this for years and ownership of the Radford Theater would give us a venue to make it happen.  Imagine filmmakers from all over Virginia, Tennessee, the Carolinas, Maryland, D.C., and Pennsylvania traveling to the New River Valley to screen their films and attend workshops at the Radford Theater.

We have a vision to write the next story of the Radford Theater.  To do that, we need you to pick up the pen and write it with us.  Donate today to The Third Act Project.
