The Harwan Theater to become a Walgreen’s
MT. EPHRAIM, NJ — My community and I need help. There is a beautiful old theater in Mt. Ephraim, NJ that is nearly set to become a Walgreen’s drugstore! The theater has not regularly shown films since the late 80s/early 90s, but has become a venue for bands and live theatre, and ran the Rocky Horror Picture Show for many years. For the past 3 years or so, the property has been leased and renovated by a woman who wanted to begin live theatre, but the borough has very nearly decided to sell. I’m writing letters, but I’m afraid that won’t be enough!
If you can offer any advice on how we can SAVE THE HARWAN please . There is a borough meeting on August 3 that I plan to attend. I’d buy it if I could! Any suggestions on funding or saving this historic theater?
