Donation to RIO Theatre Brings Christmas-in-July

July 16, 2021 - RIO movie goers received a Christmas-in-July gift last week. The church, Old Salem Missionary Baptist, expressed to the RIO Theatre they would like to donate some tickets to see ‘Spirit Untamed’ for the summer as parents have a lot of extra expenses when the kids are out of school.

Mike and Nita shared, “After the theatre being closed for 15 months and people excited to come back to the theatre, it was an extra treat for the ones that were lucky enough to get the tickets donated by the church. It not only benefited the patrons but the theatre as well so the church gave a double treat with this gift.”

In all, she reported the church donated 85 tickets and made a lot of people happy! The Adkisons both said there were so many that were truly appreciative and expressed a desire to let the church know!

Thank you to Old Salem Missionary Baptist Church from the Rio Family and all the families who benefitted.
