Roaring 20’s theater continues to entertain
EAST GREENVILLE, PA — Here’s a very nice story promoting the 2004 – 2005 restoration of this independently owned theatre that was saved from demolition. Hopefully the residents appreciate and know how lucky they are to have a saved theater showing movies!
The theater, originally built in 1924, was once termed the most modern and beautiful theater in the area; however, a victim of time, age and weather, the theater was forced to close its doors in March 2004.
That summer, the building itself was saved from demolition by its new owners, who decided to embark on a massive restoration effort to restore the theater to its original charm and splendor. After an extensive 11-month restoration process, the Grand Theater was reintroduced to the public on July 29, 2005.
This story appears in the June 12 edition ofThe Mercury Newspaper.
