Del Oro Theater shows classic films to raise funds for murals
GRASS VALLEY, CA — The Del Oro Theater is currently running a series of classic films to raise funds to complete the creation of wall murals reflecting the town’s mining history. The theater was built in 1940.
Getz said he is confident the money will be raised to complete the project, which has been in the works since the design was unveiled in March 2007.
In the last week, the mural’s artist, John Pugh, has added another strip of the painting. Pugh has been working in bursts and during the night to get the project done, but there is no estimated date of completion, Getz said.
