Nelson’s Civic Theatre is one of nine organizations in Canada in the National Trust’s This Place Matters competition.
The winner gets $40,000.

Stacey says the first thing to be fixed is the theatre’s ancient and aching screen.
It’s dangerous, expensive to maintain, and takes up to four hours to drag up or down.
