The Calumet Theatre will host its annual fundraiser gala this Saturday to raise money for a new furnace and repairs to the stage roof.
The theme of the gala is 'Cinema Sensations' and will present over 100 years of movie magic at the Calumet Theatre. The theatre will also unveil a new exhibit featuring an old projector used in the 30's.
Money raised will go toward replacing the 16-year-old furnace and leaky stage roof.
Theatre directors say the gala will be a fun way to support the community.
"It's a historic icon. We bring a lot of economic benefit to the area as well, and we provide arts and culture to the community as well as history," says executive director Laura Miller. "We are preserving a historic building. We're on the National Landmark historic buildings. It's a very important part of Calumet and its history."
The gala will be Saturday at the Theatre Ballroom at 6 p.m.
