11 Time Emmy Award-Winning Actor Ed Asner Talks About the Monte Rio Theater

In December 2020, at the age of 89 and in the midst of the pandemic, the late Ed Asner drove 8 hours from LA to Monte Rio to help save the theater from being turned into a parking lot.  We will always be grateful to Ed for his commitment to the arts, huge heart and enduring sense of humor.
