The South Padre Island Economic Development Corporation (SPI EDC) has awarded Island Cinema $25,000 in grant funding through the Sand Dollars for Success Program.
Eleven businesses applied through the SPI EDC and after taking the required courses from the UTRGV Small Business Development Center, were invited to submit written business plans.
The Sand Dollars for Success Program provides much-needed capital funds to increase sales and create or retain jobs that will improve the economy on South Padre Island.
“The EDC is thrilled to assist Island Cinema in the purchase of new seating,” said Darla Lapeyre, EDC director. “This upgrade will allow the only movie theater in our area to remain a viable business in our economy.”
