Bet S. Charles Lee designed it... he loved his quonset huts!
I think it is wonderful that Zach contributed the final $500 that got the Rio to it's 60k goal but he did not save the theater. There were volunteers who put in countless hours, several people who pledged $5,000 and community first credit union who sponsored a movie day.
"A famous guy gave a decent sized pledge at the end" is not as dramatic a headline but closer to the truth. I hope he is excited about it and gets involved because that would be great but the community came together for this one and it is our wonderful community that saved the Rio.
This is so cool! Our little tiny Rio Theatre, which was ready to close its doors due to its inability to afford new digital technology, has been saved by its community and a final push to the end by actor Zach Braff! The theatre would not suit many city types, as it is in an old Quonsut Hut and doesn't have all the luxuries of mega complexes. Thanks goodness. It oozes charm and Americana. It sits on the Russian River in Monte Rio, and is the only theatre that I have ever been to that serves homemade foods, and rather than being bombarded by commercials before the main attraction, you get to see the owners vacation photos. Its cool that the community has come together to support this icon, and that Zach Braff came through to support a truly unique theatre experience. Cool. One more little piece of a unique America spared from extinction. Zach, you have a new fan!
Thank you Zach! Thank you Gabe Meline for posting the graph I created, and updated almost every day since the Rio Kickstarter campaign began! And thank you, KGO 7 News for your story that got the pledges to jump five times higher than the entire previous month!
Is this real? I live like 15 minutes from this movie theater
The Santa Rosa Raley's employees are awful! They deserve nothing! They are so mean they kicked out a pretti for a customer thought she moved wrong! All because we have WOMEN in the mime! I hate women! I'm not surprised at what they look like, and I don't care that they take it that they are a pretti.
