This Week At Eclectic Theater: Please support HB 1527 and SB 5502! Rock Bottom Double Feature! Plus Coming Next Week!

Please support HB 1527 and SB 5502!

We support the Keep Film In WA campaign! In 2013, Eclectic Theater was rented by the Film Production, Lucky Them, for production office and background holding. This helped us pay our overall rent, but we need more production work locally in order to continue paying our increasing rent. More TV and Film production would benefit Eclectic Theater. Through out the year, we have been used for casting, locations and production office periodically by productions. More of this kind of work would help us stabilize our finances.
