As we near the end of the renovation of the Little Art and prepare to reopen, I wanted to fill you in on what’s been going on and will be happening. It’s been quite a journey and we’re thrilled with the results. We can’t wait to be back up and running with our beautiful, comfortable, state-of-the-art Little Art that also now meets all ADA standards.
Before we closed to renovate, a professional photographer took many “before” photos of the theatre for us and we have taken hundreds of photos throughout the renovation. You can see many of them posted on our website and Facebook page, and we hope you have enjoyed our clever marquee movie titles each week. Thank you one and all for your great suggestions—it’s been so much fun!
We have a lot of work to do before we reopen. It’ll be a big job just moving back in, getting organized, and then learning to use the new equipment and technology, including our new digital projector (which I keep accidentally calling our “big new computer”).
Our Grand Opening Celebration will be Saturday, September 28th from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m., so mark your calendars! I’ll be writing again soon with more details about this event.
After a summer of movie fasting, we’re craving a film FEASTival! On Sunday, September 29th we will begin a 12-day festival, featuring a number of films you may have missed this summer plus a few classics and something for the whole family. Keep an eye out for the schedule—you won’t want to miss a single film in the lineup.
We’ve appreciated hearing how much you’ve missed us, and we’ve missed you, too. On Friday, October 11th we will resume our regular programming and you will have your Little Art Theatre back, better than ever!
