You did it!

Submitted by Jane

Not only did you raise the $50,000 we need to convert to digital projection in the Alamo Theatre, but you inspired the generosity of the Stephen & Tabitha King Foundation and the Town of Bucksport to double your donations.

The projector has been ordered and a revolving fund has been set up to make much needed improvements, help provide sustainability and to support the community led, "Friends of The Alamo" as they work to expand programming.
