Ticketing update: It may be as soon as Monday that we’ll be ready to flip the switch on our new ticketing system which will allow you to purchase tickets to all shows, including films, online and in advance. We will also start accepting credit cards here at the theatre! Once the switch is flipped I will send out an email to all of you about how this new system will work. Thank you all for your patience while we’ve made this transition!

Gay Street Bridge Update: Jean Krack, our Borough Manager sent us an email today – “We’ve confirmed with PennDOT that the opening of the Gay Street Bridge will be at 11:00am on Friday, October 16. At this time we are planning to have the ribbon cutting at the center of the bridge with dignitaries and guests.” There will also be entertainment and classic cars — and everyone is invited! Please join the borough in celebrating the early completion of this project.

Thanks for your support and we’ll see you at the theatre!
