The Postcards crew was recently in Madison, Minnesota capturing footage of the Grand Theatre for an upcoming episode of Postcards. We asked Producer Andrea Singleton some questions about the segment.
Why did you think the Grand Theatre in Madison would be a unique Postcards segment?
I first heard about the Grand Theatre in Madison after reading an article in a local paper about the difficulty for small towns to make the digital leap. The Grand is unique in its long history in the town of Madison, and the fact that it is surviving thanks to the community support. They were able to raise some $100,000 in a town of about 1,500 people to go digital and will continue showing first-run movies in Madison.
What's your favorite part about the theatre?
My favorite part of the theater is that they have about four or five different seats in the theatre, showing the history throughout the years of the different seats that were brought in and taken out. I like they don't all match, it adds a lot of character and maintains the history. I also like the unique stadium seating in one theatre (there are two screens at the Grand).
Why is maintaining theaters in small towns important to you?
Small town theaters hit close to home for me as a resident of Morris. I went to college in Morris and was very thankful to have a theater right in town with reasonable prices as a poor college kid. Now as an adult, I can see the importance of keeping our small town theaters alive. It keeps businesses in town because people don't have to travel to a big city to see a movie, do their shopping, etc. It's fun to be able to bike to a movie on a weeknight in town. I plan on becoming a member of the Morris Co-op in the near future to support our small town theater for generations to come.
