As the Ioka Turns

Last week, the Exeter Theater Company local community group came out with a statement saying they were waiting for more information before endorsing Marc Murai who hopes to buy the Ioka Theater.

The local group has now met with Murai, gathered more information, and released another statement, this time throwing support behind his plans:

EXETER, NH: Earlier this year a group of community residents concerned about the fate of the Ioka Theater, organized to proactively seek a solution and a potential business partner. Last week, New Hampshire resident Marc Murai put together a Letter of Intent to purchase the historic 1915 Exeter landmark. Our non profit community group has met with Marc Murai, and we have reviewed his plans for the purchase and ultimately a new life for the Ioka Theater. We are pleased to endorse the efforts to save the theater, and will be supporting Marc and his team as they move forward with their campaign. Anyone interested in volunteering with the effort, or making a non-refundable non-tax-deductible contribution towards the purchase deposit should contact Marc Murai, at or
