The community effort to save the Colusa Theater has been marked a success.

The Colusa Firefighters Association, a Volunteer Firefighter Non-Profit Association has donated $3,000 to help save the Colusa Theatre.

“This is something our association would not do,” said the association’s president Craig Dunn, “however, the community showed us that they wanted to save the theatre, and we thought this would be a great way to give back.”

The donation allowed theater owner, Mike Wilkinson to place the order for the new digital projection system that is expected to be delivered late April.

“It is humbling to know that there are so many friends out there hundreds in fact, whom have contributed their time energy and hard earned money to help keep movies alive on the big screen here in Colusa,” Wilkinson said in a message on his companies Facebook page.

The Colusa Firefighters Association was able to make the donation from monies raised through its own fundraising events that include boot drives, crab feeds, and other various activities.

In addition to the Colusa Firefighters Association, the Colusa Rotary also donated over $5,000 to help with the efforts in saving the theater.
