Someone remind me what "on the break" means.
Ben Giese
01:00:25
Week it comes out
Chlene L Anderson
01:00:35
Thanks!
David Ericksen

On the break means the national opening date
Kristin Kearns
01:05:38
Was PPP applicable to MTC?
Dave Israels-Swenson
01:19:57
great idea
David Ericksen
01:20:41
I agree
Kellie
01:21:18
Yes, please! I may not live in Morris anymore, but I still care about the theatre and want to stay involved where possible.
David Ericksen
01:22:27
I think our by-laws say our meetings are open to the public
Jen Nelson
01:22:53
Me too, Kellie!
Thomas Howden
01:24:55
Yes Dune. The sleeper needs to be awaken!
Dave Israels-Swenson
01:28:01
The late 80s Dune may be particularly challenging as well as there were different edits of it and David Lynch took his name off of some of them.

Plus, movie purists believe in both the big screen and the public nature of film.
Nic McPhee
01:33:24
I don’t think we’re every going to create a successful business model around movie purists. All there of them are too busy listening to their LPs to spend lots of time at the theatre. :-)
Liz Morrison
01:34:06
I think it will be fall before people will be really ready to return to theaters.
Nic McPhee
01:34:14
I think we’ll come to the theatre when we’ve had a vaccine, and probably not any earlier, but that’s just us.
Kellie
01:35:31
Whenever Morris Theatre does re-open, there needs to be a big publicity push to highlight (1) that you're open again (hooray!) and (2) any safety measures.
Joel E Tallaksen
01:36:01
For me, I'm waiting for a vaccine or the numbers of new cases is very low.
ted & barbara
01:37:21
Public domain classic movies
Sarah B Buchanan (She)
01:38:26
^YES!!!
Kellie
01:41:50
If I remember correctly, Singing in the Rain was one of the most popular showings during the film festival, so there is a precedent for "older" movies drawing audiences.
Jen Nelson
01:42:00
Sarah, I'm not in Morris, but I would gladly be willing to help you with this. I've been involved with film festivals and classic films as well.
Sarah B Buchanan (She)
01:42:12
Great! Thanks, Jen!
Pam & Victor Gades
01:42:48
Vic suggests a Christmas Movie Film Festival
Thomas Howden
01:46:15
get a shot and watch a movie promotion.
Renee Kannegiesser
01:47:15
I love the Christmas Movie Festival idea.
Joel E Tallaksen
01:48:12
Here is the public domain movie site I was looking at when I was thinking about it years ago (Minnesota Based): https://www.fesfilms.com/about-us.html
David Ericksen
01:48:23
the Black Widow date is tentative, I understand, but that’s what they hope
Thomas Howden
01:49:19
In this new normal, will Black Widow go to streaming?
Kristin Kearns
01:49:46
I can't imagine going to a movie until at least probably fall, and until vaccines are fully deployed. I'd also say that to make reopening a Party, it can't happen until most people feel comfortable participating. And lastly, I think folks are desperate not for more "screen time", necessarily, but for socializing, so any Party plans should highlight the communal experience.
Ben Giese
01:49:54
On the graphic David showed it was not streaming right away
Thomas Howden
01:52:05
Watching what happens at high school sporting events will give us some insight as to making decisions to open.
Liz Morrison
01:52:25
If you need volunteer labor to finish the improvements, could you send out an email blast letting us know what’s needed and when? a
Sarah B Buchanan (She)
01:53:13
^I agree with Liz about sending an email blast with work that needs to be done, including working concessions.
Chlene L Anderson
01:53:25
Yes, thank you!
Janet S Ericksen
01:55:58
Thank you, all!
Nic McPhee
01:56:03
Thanks to everyone!
Thomas Howden
01:56:36
Jen Nelson I love that you show up and you have such good insight.
ted & barbara
01:56:56
Please remember member loan repayment in financial plans
Liz Morrison
01:57:08
Many thanks, all of you. The theater is an impressive accomplishment
Jen Nelson
01:57:36
Thank you!! I've loved this theatre since I was a kid. You're not getting rid of me too easy. LOL
Nic McPhee
01:59:58
Which means its impossible for us old folks.
David Ericksen
02:01:14
there are no greener pastures, Ben.
David A Aronson
02:01:57
Thanks to all, I was one of the original in July of 2007 so glad the theatre is still here.
ted & barbara

I would discuss this with the board, but ask CST first
ted & barbara
02:04:23
Joel is correct, the student workers would need training and supervision.
David Ericksen
02:05:12
OR run an electronic keyboard through a PA
Joel E Tallaksen

Thanks all
