As part of our Have a Seat-Go Green campaign to pay off the theater’s solar loan, we’re auctioning off a special theater seat, E9, marked in yellow on the chart below. This seat is next to one donated by Frances McDormand in honor of Fern, her “Nomadland” character.
The Bidding Owl auction is now open and will run until Wednesday, June 16.
Click here
to go to the auction site. You will need to create an account to bid, it’s easy, just click on the green rectangle with the bidding hammer next to the bidding price. The bidding starts at $1000, and the highest bidder will get a plaque placed on the seat arm with an inscription of their choice.

Donations to the Have a Seat campaign are made in support of the theater, the plaque on the seat is a public acknowledgement of your support. And while we’d love to welcome Frances at the theater any time, the seat for Fern does not mean she will be present.

Read more about our ongoing Have A Seat-Go Green campaign: Our original “Have-a-seat campaign” to pay off the mortgage is completed, but, since there are still some seats remaining, we’ve decided to refocus the campaign to help pay off our solar loan and to help us minimize our energy costs. Donations for a seat of your choice (see the seat map for available seats) can be made any time and the $1,000 will get you a plaque acknowledging your support, either as an individual or you can get together with friends and family and split the $1,000 among as many people as you’d like. The twenty characters per line for the plaque still applies. Thank you for supporting our solar campaign!
