SIFF REACHES FUNDRAISING GOAL FOR EGYPTIAN THEATRE REOPENING

The Seattle International Film Festival has announced the results of their capital campaign to reopen the Egyptian Theatre.

With generous match offers from two anonymous philanthropists and several ways to give - including a uniquely successful 'Text- 2Give' component - SIFF is pleased to announce that they've hit their match offers and exceeded their goal of $300,000.

Having now hit nearly $340,000, the organization is on track to reopen the theatre - to be called SIFF Cinema Egyptian - by October 1, 2014.

'To come full circle and have a home once again at the Egyptian means so much to me personally, and to everyone at SIFF,' says Carl Spence, SIFF's Artistic Director. 'We are excited to reopen the SIFF Cinema Egyptian in October and look forward to being an active member of the Capitol Hill community.'

The organization secured a lease for the iconic Capitol Hill venue and subsequently launched a fundraising campaign to raise funds for the necessary improvements and operational costs to get started.

The donations will go to necessities to reopen the theatre:

Critical repairs - electrical, plumbing, ventilations, and the exterior marquee

Equipment - projector, server, and computers for the projection booth

Operating costs, cleaning, maintenance, and staffing

Improvements to the theatre's interiors and sound system

'We're pleased by this support from the community,' says Mary Bacarella, SIFF's Managing Director. 'This is the largest amount of money that we've ever raised in the shortest amount of time through crowdsourcing, and the anonymous match offers got us off the ground.

These gestures speak both to the deep connection Seattle has to the theatre and to its faith in SIFF, for supporting having this beloved venue in our hands.' Watch for details on the Grand Reopening of the SIFF Cinema
