Edlambert, I think this is a great use of taxpayer money! The movies are part of American history and that should be preserved. According to the story I just read, private citizens donated to the tune of $76k.

Happy to see the cinema saved, but the story illustrates something wrong with our federal government: use of Dept. of Ag. money (from the taxpayers) to help save the cinema. Better that the locals, perhaps with support from Bismarck, keep the Scenic open. Nonetheless, may the Scenic now see prosperous times.

This theater has been completely renovated and also made handicapped accessible. Some of the art deco indoor lighting and also the lighted marquee have been restored. (which you can see on the official site photo gallery). There have been 4 owners of this theater in the years since it was built in 1916, including my wife and I as current owners. It seats 200. We show current run movies on the weekends and on special occasions during the week.
