Notes from the nonprofit

El Campanil Theatre originally opened its doors to the City of Antioch and the Diablo Valley in 1928. Almost 75 years after its opening, a small group of local citizens, including representatives of the Rivertown Business District Association, approached the City of Antioch to acquire El Campanil from its original owners, renovate it, and create a venue to enhance the Rivertown neighborhood and provide a base for artists and audiences in this vastly growing region of Contra Costa County.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
