Hello everyone. My name is Erin Robey. I own and operate the Boone Theater in Boone, IA.
We have recently fell under dire need for some repairs. Our main concern is our roof. The roof directly over the projector system has sprung a major leak, and the theater (seating area) has some leaking as well. I do not currently have the funds for any major long term repairs, so I am asking for help. 
We are also finding ourselves in need of some plumbing repairs, but nothing major at the moment. However, if not repaired soon, it may get worse.
I turn to the public in this time of need. I have never asked for help like this before, so please bear with me. I don't know how much repairs could cost, so I am starting with a smaller amount of $5000.
I am hoping we will be able to remain open, as I love this business, and my wonderful customers. I fear if the roof is not fixed, our equipment will be damaged beyond repair, and we will have to close permanently. Please help me avoid this happening.

A couple of quick updates:

Firstly: Thank you so much for all of the wonderful support that has come our way! I have been overwhelmed by how much the community is coming together to help us out!

Secondly: My one year anniversary is coming up next month, and five years in September of my family opening! I have been in the planning stages of a middle ground party to celebrate the two events. This will most likely be sometime at the end of July or early August. I would also like to use this party as a Customer Appreciation Party. Be on the lookout for more details!

Thirdly: Shoutout to Pritchard's Plumbing and Heating for getting our plumbing taken care of; so our plumbing issues are now out of the way!

Fourthly: My parents decided to fix a few of our lights in the ceiling of the theater, so they rented some scaffolding to work on that. It was just in time, as when they were about to change the bulb, one almost caught fire! Luckily no damage was done to the ceiling, or my parents. We now have all new cleaning lights (it's so bright)!

Finally: We are still working on how much damage the wind and storms have caused on the roof. We're walking a fine line. On one hand, we want it to rain so we can see where the leaks are; and assess the damage. On the other hand, we don't want it to rain, and make things worse.

Thank you all so much for your continued support!

Previous owners, and amazing parents Wayne and Brenda took a trip to the roof this morning to assess the damage. They found a source of the leak over the projector room, and did some repairs to it.
We waited with baited breath this evening as the rain began once again. While we no longer host a waterfall, there is still a leak.
I would like to say thank you once again to everyone who has already donated, and to anyone who is thinking of donating. I sincerely appreciate all the help and support everyone is extending.
We will remain open with our scheduled showtimes (found at boonetheater.com) unless otherwise notified.
