CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA — The founding owners of the Vinegar Hill Theatre have placed the theatre on the market. A 1976 reprogramming of a 1949 Modern-style Studebaker auto dealership, the 219-seat single-screen theater is not historic per se, but has had a great influence on the cultural life of Charlottesville.

A 1997 addition to the building houses a 42-seat restaurant with a 20-seat patio.

The theatre is currently operating as Charlottesville’s only exclusive first-run art cinema, as it has since its opening. It has two 35mm projectors with manual changeover. The restaurant is also currently operating. For more information, please visit
