Funds generated will assist the historic venue in continuing to operate as a site for live music, movies, and community events. After years of restoration, the theater has found new life and is a hub for activity in downtown Rochester.

Since reopening last February, the theater has welcomed nearly 7,000 people through their doors for events and shows such as live music by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers tribute band Southern Accents and local band Acoustic Voodoo Garden. In addition to regularly played movies, the theater holds a monthly senior movie day and Saturday morning matinees. Upcoming events include weekly sponsored (free admission) Christmas movies throughoutDecember and a Bluegrass Festival planned for January 13.
