MONTE VISTA - The Vali 3 Theater Advisory Board would like to extend its thanks to the Monte Vista Community and especially to Ray and Colette Skeff for their generosity and support. The customers who have brought in donations, donated through our GoFundMe page or showed their support by purchasing concessions Saturday evenings have been essential to the success of the Vali Theater and keeping it open through the COVID-19 closures and the difficulties caused by the broken projector. Thanks to the generosity of the Skeffs, who purchased a brand-new laser based 8S Projector, the theater will be reopening Friday, Sept. 18, for movies at its regular showtimes, 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday nights and 5 p.m. Sundays. Current public health regulations limit the theater to 50 percent of its capacity.
Moviegoers are encouraged to arrive early. The theater plans to show “I Still Believe” its first weekend. The projector will be installed this week. The theater will be closed this weekend for cleaning and relabeling to meet COVID-19 guidelines and a new concessions order should arrive just in time for the reopening.
