Exciting future for D&R
Courtesy of THSA:
Aberdeen, WA, is joining the ranks of cities with a restored theater, the D&R. The theater was derelict for many years and was in very poor conditions. On December 21, 2007, a new marquee and blade sign were tested and it was spectacular. It appears that in May, when it reopens, it will prove to be a world class venue and a masterful restoration.
John Yonich’s, the owner, current plan is to have only live performances at the D&R. He would like to buy and restore a second theater “The Aberdeen,” currently a church, for movies.
As many of you know, this is deja vue all over again for me. But, for once, I have had nothing to do with these projects except as a spectator.
If any of you have any material on or artifacts from either of these theaters, please let me know.
Please get the word out about this project and lets get some press.
