Plymouth's Rees Theatre needs money to save history

PLYMOUTH, Ind. --- A community treasure is coming back to life. Since the 1940s Plymouth's Rees Theatre has been a place where families shared memories and connected with others in the community.

In 2009, the Rees Theatre closed. Now the Rees Theatre Project Committee wants to reopen the theatre 11 years later in 2020.

They must raise the private funding match of $1.5 million by Halloween this year.

If they reach that goal, they will receive a matching grant of $300,000 from the regional cities initiative.
