    The Rialto Needs Our Help

    Please join me in supporting our wonderful independant movie theater through these difficult times!

    Dear Friends, Colleagues, Supporters and Stakeholders,

    As many of you know COVID-19 has ravaged many small businesses across the nation. In California, our theatre in Sebastopol has been closed by order of the County and then the State since March 17th. We are now well into our sixth month of non-operation. We have taken every reasonable step to limit our expenses and preserve our cash. We applied for and received a small PPP loan through our bank and an Economic Injury Disaster Loan directly through the SBA.

    However, our expenses are in excess of $20,000 per month. Taking on additional debt financing is not an option at this point. So desperate times call for creative measures. We have launched a GoFundMe campaign with an ambitious goal of raising $100,000 to get us through the next few months and into 2021 when hopefully we can either re-open or hope that additional much talked about government assistance becomes available.

    This is a difficult time for all of us. All we ask is that you give our GoFundMe campaign a look at the link below, give if you can, and share the campaign with your friends, colleagues, and social networks who may be willing to assist us by contributing or further spreading the word about our campaign. Crowdfunding requires a crowd so we are appealing to everyone in our proverbial rolodex.

    Thank you for your consideration and support at this difficult time.

    We send you all our best wishes in this challenging time.

    Be safe. Be well.

    Most sincerely,
    Ky & Michael
