Thank you to all those who supported the Olympic Theatre | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

In regard to the closure of the Olympic Theatre, I wish to sincerely thank my patrons, staff and many friends of the Olympic Theatre for all of their support and patronage the past 37 years of my ownership and operation of the theater here in Arlington.

In regard to the closure of the Olympic Theatre, I wish to sincerely thank my patrons, staff and many friends of the Olympic Theatre for all of their support and patronage the past 37 years of my ownership and operation of the theater here in Arlington.

In particular, I wish to thank Will Frankhouser for his web services, expertise and creation of Save the Olympic Theatre group, as well as all those in involved in the SOT group. I especially want to note Janelle Wilton and the Sno-King Saddle Up group, to whom I am extremely grateful to for all of the group’s extensive efforts in making an amazing movie fundraising event last spring very successful and fun. I also want to thank Andy Anderson for his theater handiwork, and appreciate all the people who volunteered time and effort toward the goal of keeping the theater operating.

I truly thank all those who donated funds toward the now-required digital projection equipment in these difficult economic and challenging times. Mere words cannot express my gratitude for all the efforts and donations from all involved.

Movies on film format have now ended. With no digital transition, and after 37 years of continuous operation, it is time for me to retire. The recently formed nonprofit group, the Olympic Theatre Foundation, has all of the donated funds and, as I understand, are still seeking a solution. I remain hopeful that soon another dedicated person, or group, will take the Olympic Theatre forward for the community of Arlington into the future in this new era of movie exhibition.
