  • Interested in buying/building a new theatre for live arts

    Hi all,
    I am new to this site and just found it. I am from Newburyport in Massachusetts and am looking for a theatre or information on building a new theater minimum 500 seats for live arts. Ideally, I would like to renovate an old theatre, but I can’t find one in my area.

    I am interested in any information that you may have to help me on my quest. Newburyport is a historic town on the seacoast of Massachusetts. There is a tiny not for profit theatre in town, but I am interested in regional equity.

    I appreaciate anyone’s help. Looking in about a 20 mile radius from Newburyport.
    Thanks-Todd

  • Fire Temporarily Closes Latchis' Main Screen

    BRATTLEBORO, VT — A fire yesterday in the Latchis Theatre’s main auditorium caused minimal damage (the screen, curtains, and part of the roof were burned) and the auditorium is expected to reopen Friday, according to WCAX-TV Channel 3. The other two screens will continue to operate until then.

    Electricians working in the large auditorium may have inadvertantly started the fire when a curtain was set too close to a floodlight. The fire was mostly put out before firefighters arrived on the scene. The theater and Latchis Hotel, with which it shares a building, are the only two Art Deco style buildings in Vermont.
