Movie Initiative Brings First-Run Movies back to Rangeley

Thank you for keeping The RFA Lakeside Theater as Rangeley’s movie house and center for entertainment, student programs and social activity.

All of the movie donors and volunteers showed their love for Rangeley through their undying support to bring first-run movies back to Rangeley. We are proud of our theater and our town and committed to making it the best it can be.

Thanks to you, everything is in place and beginning Memorial Day Weekend, 2018, first-run movies will be at our downtown theater.

It’s more than first-run movies. Your continued donations and support will help us afford the licensing fees that come with showing new movies, and will:

• Bring teenagers into town and offer them an uplifting social experience
• Light up Main Street and revitalize our downtown business district
• Give seniors and families accessible, low-cost entertainment
• Touch all of the lives that have made Rangeley such a special place for us to live, to work and to play.
