BUZZARDS BAY, MA — After 5 long years the Buzzards Bay Theater has reopened!

Yesterday was opening night at the new Buzzards Bay Theater. The scene that played out in the projection room was representative of the underdog struggle of a guy trying to realize his dream of movie theater ownership in a village that needs a happy ending.

Ever since Hoyts Cinemas closed at the Buzzards Bay location in 2001, Avery, a Wareham resident, has been dreaming of owning a movie theater.

Working nights and weekends while holding down a full-time job as a chef for the Raytheon Corp. in Rhode Island, Avery rehabbed the run-down building and raised the capital. When he had trouble getting investors, he knocked on doors in Buzzards Bay, eliciting residents' enthusiasm for the movies to show investors there was a demand, Sullivan said.
