Kickstarter Campaign: Salem Cineman needs your support!

kickheader_550
Several months ago, Salem Cinema was forced by the film industry to convert from 35mm film projection to fully digital state-of-the-art equipment in all three of our auditoriums. Studios ceased to strike 35mm film prints and in order to keep our doors open, we had to upgrade. This required a huge investment, part of which was met by taking out a sizable loan totaling almost $150,000 on top of our own nearly $50,000 commitment. While corporate multiplexes were subsidized by studios in their upgrades, requiring them to only cover about 25% of the total cost, this was not the case for small, independent cinemas who had to pay 100% of their total upgrades.
 
 
It’s now time for us to reach out to our loyal patrons and film lovers and ask that you please share some of this cost.
 
It means the world to us to know that your lives have been enriched by Salem Cinema over the years and there is nothing we’d love more than to continue to bring outstanding and unique film to our community. In order to do that, we need your help. We have scrimped and scraped and managed to repay the cost of one of the three projectors, but it’s been a long, hard road to reach that point.
 

We’ve set our immediate goal for $97,560 which is the combined cost of the other two projectors. With this amount, we would be able to pay off the balance of the 

loan without accruing more interest. Your contribution won’t go unappreciated! Not only will we be able to keep doing what we do best, but we have some remarkable rewards to thank you for your incredibly important and always appreciated support… without you, we are nothing! 

 
While we’ve set some contribution and reward levels, know that you aren’t restricted to those dollar amounts…feel free to give any amount. Please remember that with Kickstarter, it’s an all-or-nothing challenge. If we don’t reach our goal, we won’t see a penny.

The first annual Englewood Forest Festival is centered on Salem’s oldest park with its many stately Oregon white oaks and Douglas fir trees.

The event will highlight local artists, musicians, and businesses and also focus on helping people learn to take care of the trees, birds, gardening, and to create backyard habitat.

The art exhibit will feature more than 40 artists , most who live in the neighborhood.

The family-friendly art workshops include printmaking, painting, clay, mosaics, paper crafts and drawing.

EFF Enlace Folkloric dancingLive music and dance will also be offered in various styles, including folk, Celtic, pop, country, 50s and 60s, blues, classical, traditional Mexican music, and Latino Folkloric dance.

The Latino folk dancers will be from ENLACE of Northeast Salem which promotes collaborative community projects that encourage people to help each other. This traditional idea comes from Oaxaca, Mexico is called Guelaguetza. 

Environmental workshops are a big component and include gardening for pollinators, wildlife in the park, caring for mature trees, composting, creating backyard habitat, backyard pond basics, making bird nest boxes, and vermiculture.

Informational booths will stage interactive activities for all ages and members of the family.

Some booths will feature Salem Audubon Society, Straub Environmental Center, Marion County Master Gardeners, Pond Envy, Lord & Schryver Conservancy, and Friends of Trees.

Friends of Englewood Forest will have neighborhood historian Virginia Green on hand. She will lead historical tours of the area at a later date.

The event is free, family-friendly and open to everyone.
