Performing Arts Center on Halloween Night
Film buffs, vampire fans or anyone planning to observe Halloween by watching a creepy movie, won’t want to miss director F.W. Murnau’s silent film classic “Nosferatu”, presented by Partners for the PAC, Friday, October 31, at 7:00 pm, at the CCC Performing Arts Center located at 16th and Franklin in Astoria. Costumes are encouraged and there will be prizes for the best costumes! Parental discretion is advised. The Halloween event is one of three upcoming fundraisers to benefit the iconic PAC at the corner of Franklin and 16th Streets in Astoria.
Support the PAC!
Because of funding reductions from the State of Oregon and the continuing effects of Measure 5 cuts in the mid 1990s, Clatsop Community College faces challenges which prevents it from funding the continued operating costs of the Performing Arts Center. A coalition of local arts organizations (Partners for the PAC) has joined forces with the college to keep the PAC open for affordable arts and educational events through 2013.
Costs are estimated at $26,000 per year and Partners for the PAC is working to raise funds to sustain the performing arts facility. Funds raised will be used for maintenance and operating costs of the PAC, including publicity and fund raising expenses. Any amount raised over the operating expenses will be deposited in a contingency fund for emergency repairs and improvements to the facility.
