Canby, MN Theater Renovation Fund
Fundraiser for CANBY 4 KIDS

Nicholas raising money for CANBY 4 KIDS

Join your friends and neighbors to renovate this iconic part of our community.

This is an opportunity to help keep Canby's main street alive.  Rather than letting a major building sit empty and continue to deteriorate, city leaders stepped forward with a plan to keep the Canby Theater in public hands while having a partnership that is accountable run the theater and allow it to thrive.

The Canby Theater has been an important part of the story of the town.  Memories and stories of good times at the theater and the relationships that were built there keep emerging.  People are excited to have the Canby Theater reopen and to be refreshed and modernized.  Plans include having opportunities for first-run movies, classics and community favorites.  The newly forming Canby Arts Council plans to maintain the success of summertime Music on Mondays throughout the year by utilizing the theater as a venue for occasional performing arts programs.  It can be available for other groups as well.

Financial support from the community is still needed to make this a reality.  A digital projector; new sound equipment and screen; comfortable modern seating; updated air-conditioning and heating; a roof that doesn't leak; walls that are clean and not musty; an updated, clean concession area; a renewal of the historic marquee; addition of stage extensions, lighting, and a new curtain are some of the more visible pieces of the work that has been undertaken. 

Will you join us to make this community revitalization effort and to make a safe place for our youth a reality?  The City of Canby is fiscal host for all donations and all gifts are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.  Your donation will  be appreciated.

Here are some way that you can help:

  • Purchase one or more seats ($200 each) - 61 seats remain to be purchased
  • Assist with the purchase of a new popcorn machine ($12,000 total cost).
  • Give a general donation to help with cost of carpeting and lights for the aisles.
