Donna Reynolds, UICA's rock solid Saturday evening concessions volunteer, has dedicated her time since October 2004. Donna heard about the theatre from a coworker at the old Bijou Theater in Eastown. Since then, her friendly attitude and hard work has greatly impacted UICA in a positive way. Her favorite part of volunteering is the special film events where she got to meet such diverse characters as Crispin Glover and John Sinclair. She also enjoys seeing films in the 35mm format, and one special memory that she had at UICA was watching the newly re-mastered print of “Eraserhead." Donna volunteers at the theatre “to see the greatest films from around the world… and the popcorn is delicious.” She splits her time between volunteering at UICA and working at Davenport University and the Grand Rapids Public Museum. She does not drive a car, so she loves the central location of UICA. “It sure beats riding my bike to the multiplex!” Donna is an integral part of the UICA family and we are all very appreciative of what she does for our organization.

I have so many memories of volunteering with Donna at both the UICA and Wealthy Theatre in the early 2000s - glad to see her honored here!

She sounds like such a charming woman!
