BRYANT, S.D. (KELO) — Volunteers play a critical role at a movie theater in a small South Dakota town.
Bryant Cinema is more than 100 years old. It became volunteer-run in 1995. Linda Schlenker and her family starting donating their time several years ago.
“We were coming at least every other weekend to see a movie and one of the board members asked us if we wanted to work and so we started and we’ve been doing it ever since,” Schlenker said.
Coming up in Thursday night’s Eye on KELOLAND, we’ll talk with a board member about what this theater means to area communities.
