The Rangeley Friends of the Arts is raising funds to purchase new digital equipment to bring first-run movies to the RFA Lakeside Theater in Rangeley.

The Good Acoustics fundraiser event in July raised almost $16,000, the event was hosted by the Patnode Family and many volunteers.

Forks in the Air and many donors have helped bring the theater closer to its goal. Forks in the Air will match all donations made at the restaurant during the month of August.

Nearly $40,000 in donations and pledges toward the goal of $80,000 has been raised.
