Green Theater’s search for identity
LAPLATA, MO — The Green Theater Restoration committee is busy raising funds and looking for a purpose for the long closed movie theater.
The Green Theater Restoration committee has been busy since first buying the 1935 theatre in 2006. They have raised more than $32,000 through various fundraisers and took possession this week of an adjacent building that shares a door with the theatre.
They have also hired an architect, Linda Derrick, who met with the group Monday night at the Depot Inn and Suites. She told the 20 supporters they need to agree on a direction and a purpose and they need to put it in writing.
