Our hearts go out to our friends at the Vashon Theatre today, as the Vashon Island, WA cinema, which was scheduled to play CRUDE, had to postpone the screening due to serious equipment theft. Vashon Theatre managers arrived to work yesterday morning to find that the theater’s digital projector, DVD players, flat screen monitor, cash, and keys had been stolen from the premises.
It is difficult enough for independent theaters to keep afloat in the current economic climate without additional burdens. We’re deeply troubled by the robbery and hope the local police will find the perpetrator(s). If you have any information on the incident, we urge you to contact the local King County authorities at (206) 296 – 3311.
