On November 18th, the Run the Rails committee hosted a business after-hours event at Main Street Union City. During the event, the committee was able to present the Masquerade Theatre with a $10,000 check!
This money will help fund a new roof for the community staple.
A representative from the theatre quoted, "The Masquerade Theatre Board feels that the historic Capitol Theatre is a Northwest Tennessee treasure. There is nothing like driving down first street and seeing the marquee lights on. Over the past 90 years, the theatre has given many special memories - whether a place for a first date, someone seeing their favorite movie, or just hanging out on a Saturday and watching movies in the air conditioning on a hot summer day!
This donation will help us make much-needed improvements and repairs to our building so we can continue to help make memories for today's generation."
