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.
There is always something wrong when it comes to things like mortgages and paydayloans. Have you noticed that both of these aspects are under the constant investigation process?! So many fake companies are trying to rip people off...same time it is our fault as well, as we are not as accurate as we could have been! We have to start beng way more responisble about things like mortgages. As take a look, so many frauds have been discovered lately!

I created an online petition about this. I realized a sit in protest could get out of hand and cause damage, something I would never want to happen. Here's the link to it: http://www.petitionbuzz.com/petitions/brin…
Hail the call of the 60s, I think it's time for a sit in protest!
Did the "Montgomery Village Covered Wagon," become a distraction for traffic lights or create accidents?....This is more gentrification by outsiders to Sonoma County...Fire the "City employees of The Design Review Board!" ...Return the Montgomery Village Covered Wagon.....And this "Historical property," should be protected and designated immediately...The "City Of S.R. Design Review Board," take down the Peanuts character's while your at destruction of many of our roots and heritage....Add another one-third mile runway extension to the Sonoma County Airport...Oh, it's also time for you to return to Carmel, Ca...Sure...Not.
Hi Omar. Thanks for the correction about the SSCCC and CyBear Copy Center. I appreciate it. --J. Loceff
Thanks, Omar - fixed.
Also " counsel" should be changed to "the council"
The appropriate name of the SSCCC is the *Student Senate for California Community Colleges and the ASP membership does not grant access to the CyBear Copy Center, it merely provides a discount to services provided there.
There is nothing inferior about fanfiction, Rob. I'm a published author and I actually prefer writing fanfiction over writing my own stuff. Know what else? My best piece of work so far is fanfic.
Fanfiction isn't just a stepping stone for growing artists--it's a worthy final destination for the mature writer.
P.S. Dante, Virgil and Milton all wrote fanfic.
What?!! that sounds hard to believe!
Beautifully worded Kris. If only we had of had that revolution by now! I believe it's still coming. Btw, WHERE ARE YOU???!!! Sylvana :o)
Despicable. Darius Anderson is trying to shut down the first amendment freedom of expression and opinion in Napa and Sonoma Valleys. Darius Anderson is a plotting, manipulative man with a hard on for power and money, the most dangerous type of man is one who lays in wait for his unsuspecting prey, ready to pounce...if that doesn't work, then he plays the "pay to play" game while he "Rapes and Pillages' our City of Sonoma, our people and our land. The only way to stop a man like this is for the truth about him to be known, that's why he is buying up the media, in a futile attempt to hide all his failings, fines and downright theft of public employee pension plans in numerous cities across America which is only the beginning of his evils. The other truth is that he is so money hungry that he thinks he can get gambling into the City of Sonoma under the guise of a large hotel near our Plaza while he reaches into his pockets, realizes there is nothing there, so he begs for money as a lobbyist for some "great political cause" so he can use money that belongs to other people while practicing his speeches as a confidence man...build another Indian Casino, then steal from the Indians...a truly bad man.
Manipulative and plotting are two good words for Darius Anderson... trying to shut down the first amendment expression of opinion and speech in the Napa and Sonoma Valleys. Obviously, he has a lot to hide while he is "Raping and Pillaging" our newspapers, our land, our City of Sonoma and our people.
A despicable human being with a hard on for power and money is the most dangerous type of man.
