Help Relight the Vaska Theater!
It's going to be a good time and for a great cause! Get ready for a double feature fundraiser at the Vaska Theater. Not just any double feature, it's going to be a drive in double feature with proceeds to benefit the relighting campaign. How cool is that? You can help relight Vaska Theater, restoring the tower and neon lighting back to it's original glory. Let's all do our part to help out and donate if at all possible.
The Vaska is the oldest and longest running movie theater in Lawton, Fort Sill. It opened all the way back in 1948 and is still going strong. I couldn't tell you how many movies I've seen there from the time I was a kid to today. It's a big part of our community, our city's history and a Lawton landmark for sure. The Vaska is raising funds to paint the tower and replace all the neon lightning. They'd also like to purchase a search light that will be attached to the top of the tower similar to how it was back when it first opened up. If you haven't been to the Vaska in awhile they've done a lot of improvements to the theater both inside and out.
By attending the drive in double feature scheduled for Saturday, January 23rd (01-23-21) at the Vaska Theater parking lot you'll be helping out. Local and area businesses are also encouraged to assist with the fundraising by signing up to be a sponsor of the event. They a various sponsorship levels and pricing. Get all the details here. Now if you're unable to attend the drive in double feature fundraiser you can also make a donation online by clicking here.
I've gone to tons of movies at the Vaska but I've never been to one of their drive in movie nights. I'll definitely have to make this one. I'm not to sure what movies they'll be showing that night, but we can all stay up to date by visiting the Vaska's official Facebook page often for updates and show times.
