Images Cinema Fundraiser

Print Story | Email Story
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass.— On Wednesday, Nov. 11 at 7:30pm, Images Cinema will hold an online fundraising event, a Movie Trivia Night. 
 
Visit www.imagescinema.org to sign up teams of up to six people. Tickets cost $25 per team and will directly support Images Cinema.
 
"We miss the sense of community that in-theater films generate,” Managing Director Janet Curran said. “Having this Movie Trivia Night is a way to have more interactive connection with people, and hopefully also raise some funds to make up for lost income during this time of in-person theater closure." 
 
This Zoom-based trivia night will consist of four rounds: two general knowledge rounds, a picture round and a clip round.
 
Buy tickets to reserve a slot for your team by visiting www.imagescinema.org. Teammate information will be gathered later by email.

Town Manager Jason Hoch reported those statistics to the Select Board on Monday night to demonstrate how much the local economy has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
The numbers come from the DOR's report of local lodging establishments' liability under the rooms and meals tax. Although the commonwealth has given businesses the "small relief" of being able to defer those tax payments, the amount they owe still shows up on the books, Hoch said.
 
In the half year that began after the pandemic started to impact Massachusetts' economy, Williamstown's hotels, motels and short-term renters collected receipts that translated to a combined tax bill of $124,287.06.
