The Lyceum Theatre in Gull Lake, Saskatchewan
A special fundraiser will be taking place tonight in Gull Lake, and naturally Dead Prairies Productions has something to do with it.
Dead Prairies Productions is a local group of passionate filmmakers that split half of the proceeds of their work with a charity of their choosing. Since they began, they have donated $10,000 for Swift Current’s SPCA. Tonight the Lyceum Theatre has teamed together with Dead Prairies, and will be playing Redneck Betties: the Movie in order to raise some funds for lobby repairs and possibly a new popcorn machine.
“I’ve gone out to Gull Lake a few times to watch Hollywood films and I really enjoy the theatre there. They have nice seats, very comfortable, the screen is really nice, the audio is good, and it’s really good prices too, and it’s all volunteer run,” explained Devon Oman of Dead Prairies Productions.
In addition, the Redneck Betties of the roller derby team will be at the event for a meet and greet, according to Oman. “They’ll be there for autographs and entertainment. They will be in their gear, on their skates, and will possibly be doing some things on the street.”
The event begins at 6:30pm with a barbecue and the movie begins at 8pm. Pop and hot dogs are selling for $5, with a $5 admission charge to watch the movie.
All proceeds from the event will go to the Lyceum Theatre for upkeep.
