Community involvement needed to save Humota

By KENT THOMPSON
A full-fledge effort to save the Humota Theatre is under way.
The effort comes following an announcement last week that the theatre will close Sept. 1, unless a plan is in place to provide a transition from the current ownership of R.L. Fridley Theatres to a local group, hopefully a non-profit corporation who would be able to operate the theatre and keep it open as a local business and an entertainment venue for the community.
There was some confusion initially after last week’s announcement by the city of Humboldt, which was printed in a press release in the July 5 edition of The Humboldt Independent.
The city of Humboldt will not be taking over operation of the theatre. The city’s involvement will be as a resource and a conduit to try to organize individuals who are interested in forming a group to help save the theatre.
