ROANOKE (WSLS 10) - The Grandin Theatre Foundation recently announced they are 100 percent debt free for the first time since the theater reopened in 2002. 

Officials announced the great news via their Facebook page. The Grandin Theatre Foundation is a non-profit. Officials say all the money raised pays the bills and goes back into the theater. 

Officials with the theatre say while this is good news, they still need the community's support. They say their mission is quite simple - just keep seeing movies at the Grandin. 

According to members who run their Facebook page, the Grandin opened in 1932 and is located in historic Grandin Village in Roanoke. The Grandin is locally owned and operated. It is a first-run movie house with an emphasis in art house films and community events.
