Description: The Beacon Theatre has the distinction of being one of only a handful of community-owned theatres in BC. An integral part of the social fabric of Burns Lake and the surrounding rural areas, the Beacon Theatre serves as a starting point for entry into the workforce for many youth. The Lakes District Film Appreciation Society recently completed a massive renovation of the Theatre. This grant of $20,000 will assist with completing the final phase of the renovations, the front façade. The updated façade will bring a new look and vibrancy to the downtown of Burns Lakes.
