Movie theater hope’s new “challenge” can raise money

Posted by wlpo on August 26, 2014

The “Ice Bucket Challenge” has helped ALS get millions in donations. Can the “Popcorn Bucket Challenge” help raise thousands for the Majestic Theatre in Streator?

Facebook videos are popping up of supporters of the Majestic having popcorn dumped on their heads as they make a donation to the theater and challenge others to do the same.

Katie Trocolli with the Majestic says the idea came up after the owner put the theater up for sale. Trocolli is hoping to get a loan to buy the building.
