gray duck theater thanks our indie gogo


a special


In the late summer and early fall of 2018, Gray Duck Theater ran an Indiegogo campaign, asking for people to financially contribute to make the idea of an independent theater in Rochester a reality. The following people gave when Gray Duck Theater was not much more than a beautiful dream. Thank you for believing in us and contributing so much. Gray Duck is truly a community effort; we quite literally could not have done this without you.

We also want to thank the people who supported us in various ways throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Your support and encouragement helped us get through a very difficult time. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. 

Want to support Gray Duck Theater? Join our mailing list, follow us on social media, come to movies, and most importantly, tell your friends! Help us spread the good word!
