Massac Theatre Metropolis, IL (coming soon)

METROPOLIS, IL – The beautiful Massac Theatre, safely slumbers for now, protected by a community driven non-profit group called Save the Massac Theatre that materialized when it was just a few steps away from demolition now years ago.

On their Facebook page, the group wrote they are:

dedicated to saving the Massac Theatre. Please help us restore this fine old lady of Metropolis

The group provides a secure way for the community to donate through PayPal on their Facebook page at: facebook.com/SaveTheMassacTheatre.

In 2001 the population in Metropolis was counted at 6,465 by the U.S. Census Bureau.  If 6,465 people donated $20.00, this would equate to $129,300. This amount would complete the goal of $15,000 needed for the current Masonry repairs with a lot left over.
