Sarah Silverman tries rallying Hollywood celebs to buy Fresno’s Tower Theatre

Comedian Sarah Silverman took to Twitter on Monday evening to show support for a group protesting the potential rezoning of the Tower Theatre in Fresno.

“So an anti-LGBT church called Adventure church is trying to buy The Tower theater in the most lgbt friendly area of Fresno,” wrote Silverman in a tweet.

Adventure Church has been renting the Tower Theatre to hold services every Sunday since the beginning of the pandemic.
