Free Movie at Arlee

To celebrate its new digital projector and thank all who helped purchase it, the Arlee Theater in Mason City will host a free showing of the 1965 Rodgers and Hammerstein classic, “Sound of Music,” staring Julie Andrews Saturday, January 18 at 2 p.m. One free popcorn per movie-goer will be included.

“This is our way of saying thank you for the overwhelming support we’ve received since our fundraising efforts began in September,” said Arlee owner John Maxson. “It will also be a chance for us to show off the improved image and sound of the new projector. Recent Arlee movie-goers have been delighted with our marked improvements.” The Arlee’s new projector debuted Dec. 13.
