They really are getting down to the end here with the theater—I'm not kidding. You know it's close when they've actually hired the staff. That's right, over the last month local Maynard kids have been interviewed for the various jobs at the theater. And it was important to Steve Trumble that they be local because the theater impacts their community.
Like any new endeavor, there are bound to be hitches in the first few weeks. And everyone is new to this. So don't be surprised if the new staff flounders a little bit, gets something wrong, misses a step, or doesn't have some technical aspect right to start with. Be kind. Tell them they're doing a good job.
Let me also encourage this—let's applaud at the beginning of each movie, when those velvet curtains open up and we look around and realize that it has really, truly happened.
