The Longmont Theatre Company got a $21,000 SCFD grant in 2008 but failed to get Boulder County approval of its application in 2009, when the Cultural Council said the organization hadn't submitted all the required materials.
"Our mortgage payments are well within our ability to pay them," Carver said, even if Cultural Council members "see the building as a liability." He said the Longmont theater organization "has begun investigating ways to retire our mortgage."
The Longmont Theatre Company was one of five organizations the Cultural Council did not recommend for funding. Each of the other four applicants failed to provide all of the required paperwork, members of the advisory panel reported.
"In the end we've been battling these financial challenges, with the strong support of the greater Boulder community, for 57 years. LTC is an all volunteer community theatre made up of members from the community and we welcome anyone who wishes to help or support The Longmont Theatre Company," Carver said.

Also incomplete were applications from two out of county organizations seeking SCFD grants to help underwrite the costs of performances, projects or other events in Boulder County Fiesta Colorado, which had asked for $2,000. and the Colorado Hebrew Chorale, which had sought $1,800.
The Longmont Theatre Company is one of the few such nonprofit Colorado theater organizations that owns its own building, he said, adding that "we're in conversations with people in Longmont to remedy the things that concern the SCFD."
In 2013, the Theatre Company again applied for $25,000, and eventually was awarded $5,000 from last year's round of Boulder County's portion of Scientific and Cultural Facilities District grants.
But Steve Carver, president of the Theatre Company's board of directors, in an interview and an email on Tuesday suggested that the Cultural Council had mischaracterized or misunderstands the company's finances.

The Theatre Company didn't apply in 2010 or 2011. In 2012, the Cultural Council expressed concerns that the Theatre Company, which had applied for $25,000 in 2012 SCFD funding, hadn't yet demonstrated it had adequate plans for addressing such fiscal problems as the high costs associated with owning, operating and maintaining the onetime movie theater although then Cultural Council chairman Barry Knapp said at the time that the Theatre Company was "on the right track" toward achieving financial health.
