The Skyline Theatre in Canon City, Colorado closed its doors on June 17, 2013, but it's set to reopen on July 17th, according to an article published by the Canon City Daily Record:
Skyline Theater will open at 1 p.m. Wednesday for the first showing of Turbo, a PG flick about a racing snail.
Owners Steve Nothdurft and Karen Nothdurft and manager Linda Epperson have taken over the business for Linda and Karen's father, Roy Voss. Many steps were involved in reopening the theater, Epperson said, such as renewing contracts with the movie industries.
The town has been without a movie theater since June 17 when the family, who also leased Creekside Cinema, closed both due to high costs. They tried to raise funds to help Skyline Theater convert to digital through a kickstarter program, but it was unsuccessful.
"Hopefully people will support it and be happy to have a theater downtown," Epperson said. "I recently have heard all of this, 'How do we get people downtown? How do we drive local business?' ... and it's disheartening that not a lot of people really cared about helping us fundraise with the theater."

A Facebook group called "Save the Skyline" has been formed to rally efforts to keep the theater from being dark for good.
