CARPINTERIA, Calif. - The locally produced, award winning film, "The Bet" will be shown twice Saturday at the Carpinteria Plaza Playhouse Theater as part of a fundraiser to buy a new movie screen.
The theater's non profit staff says it currently only has a 12-foot by 12-foot screen for movies now.
With a larger screen the community can enjoy a wider selection of films.
They hope the bulk of this money can be raised with this fundraiser.
"About $20-thousand dollars, that will then get us this beautiful true wide screen which will be approximately 20-feet across and about 14-feet high," said Peter Bie with the theater group. "Then we can show the great classic films of the day that were designed to be seen on a much wider screen."
The Bet will be shown for a matinee price of $10. at 2 pm. A much bigger gala will take place Saturday evening.
It will be a $50. event with a food and wine pre-movie reception, that includes a meet and greet with movie director and actress Finola Hughes.Slideshow: Carpinteria Theater Holds Fundraiser for New Movie Screen
