In 1972, the Gordon Movie Theater was built through investments in the Gordon Community Development Corporation. Marv and Naomi Bussinger managed and then bought the theater, providing the area with years of film entertainment.

Now, more than 40 years later, the GCDC once again owns the theater and a non-profit group has been formed to renovate and re-open it. After sitting vacant for many years, water issues lead to mold throughout the facility. The leaks have been fixed and the mold has been removed. A plan is in place to rebuild the interior, making it ADA compliant, and implement state-of-the-art digital projection and audio equipment.

With your help, we can bring the cinema experience back to Gordon, Nebraska!

We are currently in the process of reconfiguring our campaign to reflect the fact that we are a 501(c)3 non-profit. During this time, we will not be able to accept donations, but should be back up by Monday, April 4. All current donors will be refunded, so they can re-donate in a way that allows their donations to be tax-deductible. Thank you for your patience and understanding!
