The Nelson Civic Theatre Society is throwing the doors open to the Civic-curious this Sunday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Those who haven’t been in the theatre since the last time the projector rolled will want to see the space now: how far the society has come, where they’ve yet to go, and all about        opportunities to help.

There will be some short presentations during the afternoon, opportunities for Q & A, tours of course, and what would a theatre be without popcorn?

Building a theatre comes hand in hand with building community — and that hand-holding needn’t be consigned to the back row. That becomes even easier when they have rows. The society is launching the Nelson Civic Theatre Seat Sale: sponsor a seat for $250 and you may even get to install it yourself.

Because this is “The Theatre Nelson Built,” it seems right to put the tools in your hands.

Not handy with a wrench? No worries; their Chair Elves will do the job.

The first film Night is coming up February 23, but shhhhh! The movie presentation is still a secret. There will be special pricing for members and opportunities to join.

There will be lights, projector, action — and seats!

The Nelson Civic Theatre project is a member-driven non-profit venture that aims to reopen and operate the Nelson Civic Theatre as a three-screen cinema for new and classic films, satellite television on the big screen (think Metropolitan Opera), performance and special events.
