This is just to spotlight the scoop on the old theater on Main Street - as posted by member Cabot Parsons
in the forums.
"There is currently a plan by a local nonprofit organization to renovate the theatre into a performing art and film center with three performance spaces: a 960 seat music hall, a 150 seat black box experimental theatre (with a resident theatre company) and a rooftop cabaret and supper club (in honor of the former Wonderbar there, the painted sign of which you can still see on the western side wall). The center will operate 365 days a year, with both live performances and first run and independent film, while the lobby will also double as a tourism and visitors center.
The organization is The Rutigliano Group, founded by Beacon native son Rob Rutigliano (disclaimer: I'm on the board). This is the same group that did the Beekman Street Artist Banners. Check out all their projects and plans at www.rutiglianogroup.org
Thanks to Cabot for the exciting info. I'm hoping to do a Q and A with Rob at some point, stay tuned.
