As you know the Hollywood Theater reopened this past summer. They have been showing fantastic classics, cool B movies, horror and cult flicks and movies for kids. They also have special events like wine and beer tastings to go along with a movie and they are teaming up with Enrico’s Biscotti to bring you dinner and a movie on a monthly basis. (A beer tasting of Leinenkugel’s Classic Amber is scheduled for this Friday right before the movie, “The Hangover” which is scheduled for 9:30pm. Dinner and a movie is on Sunday, December 20th at 6:00–the movie is “A Christmas Story.” Details for the event are posted on line at www.hollywooddormont.com).
The Hollywood is also a BYOB theater (beer and wine only) and you can now order pizza and hoagies and eat them in the theater!
What you may not know is that the theater operates daily with the help of volunteers. Volunteers help with ticket sales and concessions every Tuesday through Sunday. There is a core base of volunteers, who are awesome and can’t be thanked enough for their time and energy, but more are needed. We need the residents of this community to back this theater and lend a hand. Yes, you are needed to go to the movies and experience the awesomeness of a single screen theater, but if you can support the theater by volunteering that would be great too! Even once a month would work…as little as 2.5 hours!
If you think you can lend a hand, please go to www.hollywooddormont.com and click on “volunteer” and fill out the form. You can also email the volunteer coordinator Holly at firstname.lastname@example.org There are other opportunities besides tickets and concessions–PR/marketing, etc..if you are interested in getting more involved. If you know someone that may be interested please forward this along. If you have contacts with local colleges or high school community service departments please send a reply email. Without the support of the community, the theater will not succeed in the end.
Thank you for seriously considering lending a hand…any way you can.
