A local mother has formed a club that supports her weekly film habit and benefits a downtown Camas business.Carissa Reid, of Camas, founded the Camas Movie Club, because she loves movies and wants to help promote the Liberty Theatre.She has seen more than 50 movies at the Liberty since December 2011. Her recent favorites have included “Brave,” which she saw with her daughter, “The Dark Knight Rises” and “The Odd Life of Timothy Green.”
“I was also very taken with ‘Robot & Frank,” which was a quiet little film with some unexpected twists,” Reid said.
That movie and “Magic Mike” are among the films viewed by Camas Movie Club members in the Granada Cinema, at the Liberty.
After a $13,000 renovation project, the Granada opened in June. The renovations included the installation of a Dolby stereo sound processor, upgrades of the projection system, re-carpeting of the steps, painting, adding new lighting and cleaning the curtains.
The Granada has 26 seats.
“It has the wonderful intimate feeling of a home theater with very nice chairs and limited seating, but the screen is good-sized and the sound system is very good,” Reid said.
