World Theatre lights up the Bricks again

The lights of the World Theatre’s new facade light up the bricks of downtown Kearney for all to see. 

The theatre has recently surpassed its goal in raising over $650,000 for renovations in hopes of reopening the theatre.  “We are ecstatic about the Kearney community's amazing support for our cause. None of this would have been possible without everyone’s support. They’ve all been really great.  We look forward for a grand opening to show the donors how their donations were utilized by the theatre to restore it back to its grandeur that it once had,” said Brad Driml, treasurer of the World Theatre Foundation.  

The theatre aims to show films as art as well as entertainment. These films will “primarily be the short Indie films, documentaries and older movies like ‘Star Wars,’ ‘Back to the Future,’ ‘Jaws’ and other classics like that,” said World Theatre Foundation president Jon Bokencamp.

The World would like to open its door by December 2011.
