For information on the Camera Cinemas (the proposed theatre operator for First & Main project), please go to http://www.cameracinemas.com/camera.htm. From this information, you will be able to see that we are not just another movie theatre.

I would also like to add that part of our proposal is to donate the use of the theatres to the City and therefore, to the community of Los Altos. Traditionally in cities where we have theatres, this donated space has been used by non-profit organizations, cultural and arts groups. It can also be used by City sponsored organizations and/or community groups, for meetings and presentations. Use of our theatres would be provided from 7am to 12 noon, five days a week, one week per month. Based on our present rate of $ 175/hour, this equates to a $ 315,000 donation every year back to the citizens and community of Los Altos.

This donation was always part of our plan, and was offered to the City when we were first considered as an applicant.
