LARCHMONT, N.Y. -- There is a local effort to save the Larchmont Playhouse movie theater that will be accepting pledges up until June 30.

The historic theater is still for sale and a recent Kickstarter campaign was launched, but subsequently cancelled, by the Pelham Picture House, as reported by The Daily Voice . Now, a new Larchmont-based group is forming to determine just how much money could be raised to purchase the theater.

According to the broker for the building, there are two bids ranging from $1.2 to $1.4 million, at least one of the bids proposes to convert the building into offices. Efforts to preserve the theater would necessitate at least $1.2 million pledged before June 30, a deadline communicated by the broker. The group intends to structure the purchase through a 501(c)(3) organization.

For those interested in giving, email SaveLarchmontMovies@gmail.com or contact Ellen Zuckert at ezuckert@gmail.com. All pledges will be kept confidential.
