As a good citizen of North Bend, I think the theater should never ever shut down. I know the modern projector costs a lot, so I encourage people to donate money to the North Bend Theatre. Either way I'd go to the theater even if they played old movies. I personally don't care if the movies are old. If they raise their prices don't blame them, blame the movie industry.
