Ouachita Little Theatre is undergoing a thorough cleaning and disinfection process from ACCI Restoration before “Free Movie Night” returns July 8. The sanitation includes the utilization of a CDC approved material recommended for the mitigation of the Corona Virus. This will be used to steam each seat and clean the entire auditorium. They will take samples from all parts of the building and test for any changes that need to be made to keep the 100-year-old building environmentally safe for OLT patrons.
President Rudi Timmerman expressed his appreciation for ACCI owners, Rick and Donna Morse. “While this process will be expensive for OLT, it is the only way that we want to operate. The safety of our patrons is of utmost importance. ACCI demonstrates that they are supportive members of the community by giving OLT substantial discounts for the work. We are very grateful to them for their generosity.”
Timmerman also expressed his thanks to Aleshire Electric, The Pulse Multi-news Media, The Mena Star, KAWX News, and other area industries as well as individuals for their support shown in various ways. “It is especially encouraging to see some of our local businesses come to the aid of our non-profit organization during this pandemic. We are grateful. OLT is dependent on producing shows to generate income, and we are unfortunately unable to do that right now. But we will be back, better than ever, as soon as we can safely do so!”
