David and the new board quickly went to work rewriting bylaws and declared their sole purpose is operating the FTW.

The new board of directors has identified three priorities for the Fox Theatre Walsenburg: purchase a new laser projector, repair and revitalize the east façade including the neon marquee and expand programming.
In 2018 the board plans to expand movie programming to include more screening times and curated movie series. The theatre also hosts community groups, weddings, birthdays, and special events (live music, stand-up comedy, pipe organ shows).
