Manitou Springs (September 27, 2012)—Make plans now to attend the film screening of Centennial Statehouse: Colorado’s Greatest Treasure, a film by Havey Productions, which will screen at 6 p.m. on Thursday, September 27, 2012 at the Manitou Springs Heritage Center located at 517 Manitou Avenue. Ticket proceeds from this event will help support the Colorado’s Most Endangered Places Program and additional donations will help the Share in the Care campaign to restore the capitol dome.
“We are proud to be the only location in the Pikes Peak Region on CPI’s statewide traveling film tour” stated Heritage Center boardmember Michelle Anthony. “This is a great opportunity to learn about our state capitol and support its restoration and the Endangered Places Program.” This benefit screening will help open up the discussion of preservation issues regarding not only the Colorado State Capitol, but also resources in Manitou Springs. By raising awareness of the Share and the Care campaign in congruence with Endangered Places, we can work to protect the State Historical Fund in order to support future preservation projects across the state.
Tickets will be available at the door; cost is $10. If you have questions regarding the event please contact Rachel Parris, Endangered Places Program Manager, with Colorado Preservation, Inc. at (303) 893-4260 x236.
