Since the long-shuttered Castle Theater reopened half a year ago, it had proved to be a resounding success, according a report from the Pantagraph.
According to it’s owner, Ben Slotky, “It’s bigger than anyone thought it would be. It took off so quickly.” The brew and view-style movie house was restored over the past couple years and was opened in May of this year after being closed since 1988.
Now, Slotky is expanding his vision of what he wants the Castle to become, an entertainment complex filling each of the 86 year-old building’s five floors, beginning with the second story, which he plans on turning into a pool hall. “After or before the movies,” Slotky says, “people are going other places. I want them to stay here.”
May I say, Ben Slotky good job on the theatre, hope you have the best success!
