I am proud to announce that the Crystal Theatre is back open for business. We open tonight (4-20-12) at 7 p.m. with the movie starting at 7:30 p.m. Our feature is Mirror Mirror
The Crystal is currently not showing movies, however, a civic organization, Okemah Community Improvement Association, just purchased the theater to help restore and save it. The borrowed $15,000 extra for repairs. Unfortunately they did not know the roof was is such bad condition. They are putting on a new rubber roof, which will never have to be fixed again, and it cost $23,000. They are trying to raise the remainder of the money. Currently donations are accepted through PayPal at www.okemahok.org, www.okemahnewsleader.com or on the Save the Crystal Facebook page. Also donations can be mailed to: Okemah CIA, P.O. Box 165, Okemah, Ok 74859. Okemah CIA is a 501©3 non-profit organzation.
