Save the popcorn machine from Center Theater

Please help us reclaim a piece of our city's history! We seek funds to purchase the original popcorn machine from the old Center Theater, located on West Main Street in downtown Albemarle. This machine has been restored and is in good working order, and is being sold by a private individual. We would love to reclaim this piece of our city's history and have it up and running again for the public to enjoy.

Albemarle Downtown Development Corporation is raising funds, and all proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards purchasing the machine.

No donation is too small; we'd love for you to be a part of bringing this neat piece of our history back home!
