Not only did you raise the $50,000 we need to convert to digital projection in the Alamo Theatre, but you inspired the generosity of the Stephen & Tabitha King Foundation and the Town of Bucksport to double your donations.

The projector has been ordered and a revolving fund has been set up to make much needed improvements, help provide sustainability and to support the community led, "Friends of The Alamo" as they work to expand programming.

We are all very thankful and humbled. And personally, I have been moved by the unbelievable support for this little 1916 Main Street cinema. Your generosity and love has been amazing. Thank you for saving Your community cinema!

Northeast Historic Film owns the 1916 Alamo Theatre building on Main Street in Bucksport where we operate a community cinema. We have two 35mm variable speed projectors and show Archival Moments before every show. 
Studios no longer distribute film that will run on our projectors. A community initiative is raising money for digital cinema projection equipment.  Thank you to all who have contributed.  Please give now, as a new grant from the Stephen & Tabitha King Foundation will match your gift. Thank you!
