I would love nothing more than to be open and running movies at this time. There are some very good movies coming out this summer. Unfortunately, at this time, we are not at that point where we can play them and I myself am unsure of our future here. But, no matter, I am determined to see the Catlow continue as a prime entertainment venue, either with me at the helm or under a new management if it comes down to that. The Catlow should never go away. It is way too significant as an historic institution for Barrington and the surrounding communities. So please, I implore you to help me keep it going, one way or another. If you think you have what it takes to move it forward, I’m all ears. It is quite humbling for me to have to have my hand out for support once again after all we have accomplished here in the past. But here we are. As Roger Ebert once said regarding the Catlow, “Please help!” There aren’t many theaters like The Catlow left out there.

Thank you again to all those who have helped out with our ongoing Catlow GoFundMe Campaign.We have been closed since March of 2020 and way short of the needed funding to help pay our outstanding expenses. But, there is still time to pitch-in if you feel so inclined. Here's the link to THE CATLOW crowdfunding campaign:

Have a great Memorial Day Weekend... be safe and get some well deserved relaxation in! Miss you all.
Thank you!
