MASON CITY - Join the Arlee Theater in
Mason City for its kick-off fundraiser for the S.O.S. Campaign to
Save Our Seats - some will be replaced with new, wider seats that
have cup-holders, while the rest will be seeing a proper restoration
and re-spacing to allow for more legroom.
At 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 12 the battle of all battles is going
to take place: it's a sit-off!
An extreme take on the classic game musical chairs, this fundraiser
will see who the “ultimate sitter” is. The event is open to ages 10
and up, but there will be activities for those too young to
participate, including their own game of musical chairs.
It costs $5 to enter the contest. Spectators (and hecklers) must
also cough up $5 but they will receive a free bag of popcorn. They
may choose whether to eat it or throw it at competitors.
The concession stand will be open, limited baked goods will also be
for sale, and there will be raffles as well. Doors open at 1:30, so
participants can have ample time to warm up, stretch, or practice
sitting prior to the event.
