Dear Speakeasy Patrons:

As many of you know, Speakeasy Theaters has been experiencing extreme financial difficulty since opening the Cerrito Theater. We learned much from the closing of the Parkway. Of most importance, we learned that our patrons would have preferred more warning of its impending closure. The El Cerrito City Council is meeting on Monday, May 18th to discuss the fate of the Cerrito Theater. Speakeasy Theaters has already agreed to leave as operators and we have offered to locate and train a new operator.

If any of this is of interest to you, I suggest that you attend the meeting.

Due to our present financial difficulties, the theater will no longer be opened Mondays and Tuesdays. Sorry for any inconvenience to you.

Thank you for your support.
Kyle and Catherine
