Seattleites reading this blog will remember the closure of Columbia City Cinema last May. That seemed to be the end of the line for the cinema, which opened in 2004 but continually struggled financially despite its popularity with neighborhood residents. Now there’s a new plan to reopen the cinema: The local nonprofit SEEDArts, working with a community advisory board, has developed a plan to refurbish and reopen the theater as a “Community Supported Cinema” — but needs to raise $60,000 in 60 days to do it. Donations are being accepted at SEEDArts’ website; those seeking more information can contact Jerri Plumridge, SeedArts’ director, at firstname.lastname@example.org. All donations are tax deductible; all will returned if enough money isn’t raised to sign the lease.
