ELLSWORTH — The Grand will hold a movie poster sale Friday, March 15 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Posters will be sold for $5 each and proceeds will benefit The Grand’s Skip Baker Memorial Film Fund.
Baker was the film programmer and projectionist at The Grand for decades. “Those who grew up in the area, remember both his personality and his amazing taste in movies from around the world,” event organizers said. The Grand, to honor his memory, created a fund in his name to support the ongoing film programming that he was so associated with. Donations support both the weekly CineGrand Tuesday night screenings and weekend movies.
We will offer for sale posters of recent Hollywood blockbusters and great kids movies as well as posters of some of the best foreign and independent movies. But be aware: all posters are sold as is, including the ones that were mounted with push pins and thumb tacks. Grand staff will be on hand to help facilitate sales, as well as answer any questions about upcoming events at the theater.
