The Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians is pledging $100,000 from its gaming foundation to the community in Corning, California.

The Rolling Hills Casino Foundation will share the money over three years for the Rodgers Theater reconstruction project. The money will help restore a historic structure that first opened in 1935.

“Many of our tribal members grew up in Corning, and Rodgers Theater has a special place in our heart," Chairman Andrew Freeman said in a press release. "As a movie theater, it provided the community countless hours of entertainment before it closed in 2006. As a performing arts center, it will be even more valuable, providing a stage for community and professional performances."

The tribe operates the Rolling Hills Casino in Corning.
