Fargo Theatre's Bailly stepping down

Fargo Theatre Executive Director Margie Bailly announced she is stepping down after the annual financial meeting in June.

Bailly told the Fargo's Board of Directors on Thursday.

“I love my job and I’m having a wonderful time, but I’ve been here since 1997,” Bailly said. “It’s time to go if you’ve been here more than 10 years, I think.”

The 65-year-old said the decision is easier knowing that she is passing the job on to an “extraordinary staff that can carry on my vision better than I can envision it.”

Emily Beck, currently film programmer and film events coordinator, takes over as executive director. Sean Volk becomes operations and administrative manager and Betsy Dreessen becomes finance manager.
