Raymond Theatre in search of help
RAYMOND, WA — With a planned closure in the near future, residents are banding together to save the Raymond Theatre.
About 5,000 residents in North Pacific County can expect a letter soon asking them to open their wallets to help save the Raymond Theater from closure.
A movie house and performing arts venue, the theater is owned by the city. It has been losing $50,000 to $60,000 a year for the last few years due to declining attendance and the expense of renting movies.
The city had planned to shut down the theater on March 31, but is allowing some wiggle room to see what develops. The letter writing campaign is being launched as a first step by community groups to keep it open.
