Mungo is asking for volunteers to help him with distributing the goods.
He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
More than 600 gave to the cause.
The following were among those who donated $1,000 or more online (the highest multiple barring the anonymous grant): Eileen McCoy, Meg Baird, Judy Morrison, Thomas Smith, Andrew Lintz, Lawrence Tiller, Paul Harrington, Brian Hennessey, Cheryl Richardson, Daniel Balkus, Marie and Michael Hoffman, Beth Welch and Chuck Christiansen and Dorothy Fairweather.
Asked why she gave, Welch said, “The Screening Room is a cultural gem of Newburyport. We love the city and it’s probably on everybody’s list as one of their favorite places in town.
“It has a wonderful history, and it provides an outlet for movies that wouldn’t come to this area otherwise.”
