Support The Varsity Theatre

For the past month the Downtown Partnership has been working with The Varsity to create a Kickstarter campaign to digitize their theater.  We're thrilled to announce that since Wednesday evening  we've raised over $11,000!  

The Varsity was built in 1927, (Originally the Carolina Theater and then the Village Theater) making it one of the oldest theatres in North Carolina and a Chapel Hill institution.  We need the community's support to raise the money to make this upgrade.  Please consider supporting this downtown institution and sharing with your friends!
