Dormont’s Hollywood Theatre now operating as a not-for-profit
DORMONT, PA — The Hollywood Theater has reopened yet again, this time under the management of the not-for-profit Friends of the Hollywood Theatre. The theater most recently closed in 2009.
In its new life in the hands of the nonprofit group Friends of the Hollywood Theater, the movie house is being run in an approach used by many arts organizations and a growing number of historic single-screen movie theaters.
The Strand in Zelienople, the Valley Players in Ligonier and the three city movie theaters operated by Pittsburgh Filmmakers are all being operated by nonprofits. The nonprofit Denis Theatre Foundation is raising $4.5 million to reopen The Denis, a 1930s Mt. Lebanon theater that closed seven years ago.
