The reopening of the Mayer as a community volunteer operated theatre will bring the total small town theatres run this way to 20.  The Brekke family has purchased the Mayer Theatre for the community to run.  They restored the neon marquee, and the Grand 15 Theatres staff from Bismarck spent many weeks cleaning the theatre, and installing a new projector and sound equipment.  All that is asked in return is that volunteers come forward to run this little jewel of a theatre.  If you are interested in helping, please stop by the theatre and sign up.  And don't forget to patronize this wonderful vintage 1949 main street movie house.
