DURHAM, NC — (September 23, 2020) — Since the start of the pandemic, trivia host Arturo Sanchez has staged online editions of the quiz games he normally hosts in-person at Durham establishments Bull McCabe’s Irish Pub and Fullsteam Brewery on Wednesdays and Thursdays respectively. In addition to providing a safe and fun activity for those not yet ready to venture to bars, the at-home trivia nights have helped raise more than $25,000 for local service industry workers affected by the pandemic, and various community causes and nonprofits.
On Wednesday, September 23 at 8 p.m., Bull McCabe’s Trivia/Arturo’s Quiz From Home will benefit Carolina Theatre of Durham, Inc., the nonprofit that operates the city-owned venue. The nonprofit, along with Merge Records and Vaguely Reminiscent, also sponsors the trivia games, offering up swag, cinema passes and event tickets as prizes.
For the Carolina Theatre benefit night, the nonprofit is offering up various merchandise and cinema passes to winning teams. Winners can even choose to experience the theatre’s virtual cinema offerings at home by electing to watch the documentary on musical icon Chuck Berry, the Jessica Chastain thriller Ava or the new horror comedy, Dead.
Brush up on your trivia skills and play Quiz From Home every Wednesday and Thursday at 8 p.m. Play tonight and help support Durham’s historic showplace, the Carolina Theatre.
