"Theater Campaign Sees Pledges Mount Quickly" Vineyard Gazette

In just one week, a fledgling campaign to revive two historic movie theatres has raised more than a third of its $1 million goal. Mark Snider, an Edgartown hotelier who last week announced the creation of a new nonprofit to renovate and lease the Strand and Capawock cinemas, said he had collected $350,000 in pledges since last Friday. “So far, the response has just been remarkable,” Mr. Snider told the Gazette by phone Thursday morning.
