A vintage theater that was in danger of being shut down has been saved from closure.
The previous owner of the Century Cinema in Rugby decided to get out of the business last year.
That's when the Rugby Jobs Development Authority stepped in.
The group put together a committee to save the movie theater - and gave it a new name - the Lyric.
Now, thanks to a matching grant from Enbridge, the group has raised more than half of its 200-thousand dollar goal to both keep the theater open and upgrade it.
(Fr. Tom Graner, Committee Member) "We started showing movies in March with the equipment that's here and we're planning a digital upgrade now for the end of August."
(Brenda Foster, Rugby Jobs Development Authority) "Officially as of this week we've raised over $100,000 so digital equipment has been purchased, sound equipment has been purchased. It's between businesses giving financial donations, individuals, and a number of grants."
