There are many small businesses that are hurting right now due to the coronavirus pandemic. With shelter-in-place orders, all movie theaters are shut down for the foreseeable future. Many of these are small little family-owned operations that could use a little extra help right now. I’ve personally done many events at both the Trylon and Emagine Theaters Willow Creek and cannot wait to patron them again.

Trylon Cinema
2820 E 33rd St.
Minneapolis, MN 55406

Punch Cards are available through their website for $30 apiece for five punches. You can pick them up at the box office once they reopen. You can use them the next time Bradley Traynor and I do our LGBTQ series.

To order your punch card or make a donation (as they are a 501(c)(3) non-profit), visit their website and don’t forget to follow them on social media for updates.

Woodbury 10 Theatre

On Friday, April 24 from 5pm to 8pm, the Woodbury 10 Theatre is selling popcorn, candy, soda to help the theater and they are also selling movie posters where sales will go directly to their employees. Their motto is “The Twin Cities most affordable first run theater experience.”
