Dear Crush friends & family,
It’s at this time of year when we would typically unveil our new trailer, courtesy of the brilliant Kristi Simkins. Unfortunately, with that good news comes some not-great news.
With a heavy heart, we write to let you know that we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Walla Walla Movie Crush. We had high hopes. The pandemic appeared to have plateaued and was under control in Walla Walla County about ten days ago, but since then, COVID cases have spiked significantly. Just today, Gov. Inslee put the entire state’s reopening on hold for at least the next two weeks. The health and well-being of our movie-lovers is paramount; thus, we cannot continue moving forward towards that longed-for opening day under the current circumstances. This isn’t what any of us wanted, and we’re devastated to be pulling the plug at this late stage.
Wheels are churning on alternative options (online viewing, an in person gathering later in the year, etc.), but we have made no firm plans at this time. We will keep you all informed as things progress. Updates will be shared on our website and social media channels, and in this newsletter which we’ll continue to send on a mostly-monthly basis.
In the meantime, please stay safe and strong, and mark your calendars for July 9-11, 2021.
With love & gratitude,
Warren, Nancy & Ranielle
