Help Keep the Rosendale Theatre Alive

Dear friends, This is about the most important project I've had the pleasure to support. Please give it your attention, as it is so important to our little, but great community. Thank you very much. 
Sincerely, Betsy Tuel

Rosendale Theatre Collective
Give yourself the holiday gift of keeping the Rosendale Theatre alive.
We're more than halfway to our goal of $20,000! The Cacchio family has generously given us another week -- until December 15th -- to raise the $20,000 needed for the binder. No gift is too small or too large!

The Rosendale Theatre is one of the few family-owned, single-screen movie theatres still operating in the United States.
In addition to providing high-quality art films, the theatre has been a community space for many local organizations to fundraise, meet, inform, inspire and educate. It has a rich history of supporting independent filmmakers, artists, and civil and human rights organizations worldwide.

The Cacchio family made this gift to our community for 60 years. They have now decided it's time to sell.

A recently formed community group, currently called the Rosendale Theatr
e Collective, is negotiating with the Cacchio family to purchase the theatre. We're fundraising under the fiscal umbrella of the Children's Media Project. This relationship with the Children’s Media Project means that all donations are tax-deductable to the full extent of the law.

To make a donation, you can click on the PayPal button on the Chlidren's Media Project site and indicate Rosendale Theatre Collective in your donation instructions. Or make out a check to Children’s Media Project. Please write Rosendale Theatre Collective in the memo space on your check.

Please mail checks to: Rosendale Theatre Collective PO Box 250 Rosendale, NY 12472

Thank you for joining us in this exciting and important project!

Please share this with anyone you know who loves the Rosendale Theatre!

Current members of the Rosendale Theatre Collective include (in no particular order): F-stop Fitzgerald, Ron Parenti, Nicole Quinn, Gale McGovern, Fre Atlast, Ellen Sribnick, Beverly Keith, Amy Trompetter, Jan Melchior, Yuval Sterer, Lisa Sterer, Abba Johnnes, Dan Guenther, Brian Mathews, Betty Greenwald, Dana Rudikoff, Livia Vanaver, Bill Vanaver, Linda Park, Jane Hollinger, Marty Molitoris, Anissa Kapsales, Bill Brooks, Sophia Raab Downs, Laura Shaine, Bob Godwin, Nicole Fenichel-Hewitt, Ali Gruber, Louis Torchio, Annette and Max Finestone, Carol Garfinkel, Jane Hollinger, Eve Waltermaurer.
