Skyline Theatre Project moving forward

November 15, 2019

The Skyline Theatre Project is still moving forward, according to supporters. The group has been working diligently behind the scenes to ensure that the project continues to move forward and upward. The board has been busy working with different local groups, including Pinedale Mayor Matt Murdock, and the Wyoming Business Council in adjusting the business plan and readjusting the main set-forth plan after the Town of Marbleton opted out of joining forces for the movie theater operations. After regrouping, the project members are hoping to present an all-new proposal to the Town of Pinedale by year-end.

The money raised to date is still being held in a special account to go towards the project. Once the building is purchased and renovated, current thoughts are for the theatre to have both a stage for small live performances and a screen and projection equipment for movies. Organizers are hoping to be able to show both first-runs and "oldies but goodies" on the big screen. See the links at the bottom of this article for more details on the history of this historic renovation project. The Skyline Theatre is located in the historic district in downtown Pinedale on North Franklin Avenue. It operated as a movie theater in Pinedale from the 1940s into the 1980s.

If you are a local to Sublette County, look for an upcoming survey so that your voice may be heard. Supporters will have a table at the Pinedale Aquatic Center and be outside of Ridley’s Market in upcoming days asking locals to take a quick survey about the project. Survey takers will be entered into a drawing to receive gift certificates from local businesses.

The Skyline Theatre Project committee is also asking for Letters of Support from locals about how they think the theatre will benefit them, their children, the community, and local economic development. Organizers hope locals will speak to Pinedale Town Council members and encourage them to support the project and the community.
