We're watching 12 movies in 24 hours to raise money for a NC-based non-profit, the Carolina Theatre.
The Carolina Theatre has been a foundation for downtown Durham, NC since it opened in 1926. I want to see this 94 year-old institution continue to thrive. And I somehow convinced two other people to join me.
When you wake up on Saturday, we'll be watching movies. When you're running your errands and check Facebook, we'll be here, watching movies. And when you tuck into bed after a long Saturday out in the world, we'll be on our 6th pot of coffee, watching movies. 4am Saturday to 4am Sunday. No sleep. No distractions.
Support us and your tax-deductible donation will go directly to the theatre's annual Retrofantasma film program. Retro shows double features from cinema's past, along with the original trailers that played when they premiered.
Whether it's supporting independent theaters, whether it's pity, whether it's a begrudging respect... throw some funds to a non-profit that deserves it, and prove that not every fundraiser needs to include donuts or a 5k.
