Not only is the Antioch Theatre a family that is passionate about their job; they are passionate about their community. On the Fourth of July, children got to meet some of their favorite characters from Disney. Everyone was having a blast.

For nearly 100 years, the theatre has been providing quality entertainment for Antioch and its nearby towns. Earlier this year, the theatre was shut down due to maintenance problems, however, an individual from the community has stepped up. On June 16, he launched a project on Kickstarter to raise the funds needed to save the theatre.

Now, it's time for the community to give back. There are about 20 days left of the Kickstarter project, and the theatre still needs to raise a good portion of the funds. Anyone can help out by going to the Kickstarter project page. Along with your pledge, you can receive an amazing reward that shows off your support. A link to the project page can be found on Antioch Theatre's Facebook page.
