The hope is that the community support will create a new source of funding that they have not been able to tap into yet. Finally, Bandt said, the theater will be reopening on Jan. 20 with a new schedule. She said the theater would be offering a kids' movie at 7 p.m. and an adult movie at 9 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. They will no longer be showing on Sundays. So far, the only additional funding that the theater has mined in has been from a donation bucket to purchase new seats. To date, Bandt said, the donations have added up to just over $800. Larson said that the theater would need to generate 75 to 80,000 dol- lars to be able to afford both new seats and the digital projector equip- ment. "This is a community venture," Larson said. Bandt added that anyone who would be interested in donating or of- fering fundizising ideas could contact her about how to save the Lyric. "The change of the industry is causing us all of these headaches," Lar- son said. "I hope the community does get behind this."
