Member News - Donation will help Monarch purchase new screen

A generous donation from Cancarb Limited will help the century-old Monarch Theatre get a new retractable screen this year.  The screen is part of the Friends of the Monarch Society's ongoing effort to revamp the theatre, which will eventually end with a new digital projector and sound system to continue to allow the theatre to show films.

After the screen is installed, the next goal is to expand the stage to allow for more live performances. 

The Friends of the Monarch have also recently launched a new website,, to inform the community on events at the theatre and restoration efforts.

Tax deductible donations to help fund theatre projects can be made by contacting the Society
