TEMPE, AZ — The former Harkins Centerpoint Theatre is seeing new life as a performance venue.

Now called MADCAP Theaters, the old movie house has been remodeled as a venue for live music, film screenings, stage performances, lectures and art exhibits.

“Our main goal is to take an asset we already have in this great building and repurpose it to bring a fresh, exciting vibe back to the Centerpoint courtyard area,” says Casaundra Brown, spokeswoman for the Downtown Tempe Community, the partnership of Mill Avenue District merchants and community leaders who, along with sponsors like Pepsi and Sitewire, got the project off the ground.
