Hand-crafted Goonies Treasure Chests

Hand-crafted espDSCN0594ecially for our screening of The GoonDSCN0595ies on May 29 & 30!  These amazing one-of-a-kind treasure chests  were built and donated by the Stafford Creek Corrections Center Veteran’s Project.  The plaque in the center of the lid is crafted from the original pieces of stage flooring from the theatre!  There will be one chest, laden with booty, auctioned off each night.

Original inventory listing

Thanks to Sharon Balin, the widow of Al Balin, for donating the original inventory listing.  The list belonged to Al when he managed the 7th Street Theatre in the 1970s era.  We plan to digitize all pages, but here’s a shot of page 1.  Al passed away earlier this year.

Organ #2 transplant

Two of our volunteers, Bob Martin and Betsy Seidel, have been actively involved in helping us with the organ project.  Several months ago they were informed that a gentleman from Seattle had passed away and the executor of his estate was looking for a home for his pipe organ.  With the help of the Puget Sound Theatre Organ Society, we were able to procure this organ, which is in excellent condition.  It is a Wurlitzer pipe organ with a “toy box” and we plan to use it for parts when we are able to raise the funds  to install the organ.  It is being stored in the LaVogue Building in Hoquiam for now, as the original organ parts are already taking up most of the space under the seats at theatre.
