John Waters heads up effort to buy New Art 3 theater
PROVINCETOWN, MA — A local group headed by director and local resident John Waters is gearing up to acquire the New Art 3 theater at Whaler’s Wharf. It would become the permanent home of the Provincetown International Film Festival.
To make it happen, the festival must raise $450,000 in one year, according to the terms of an agreement with the current owners, Whaler’s Wharf LLC, which also runs the Provincetown Art House Theater across the street.
The festival group would need an additional $200,000 to complete renovations on the small, second-story theater located inside a retail mall known as the Whaler’s Wharf. The theater operated year-round at one time, but has been closed for the past few winters, Hanna said.
