Dyan commented about Pastime Theater on Nov 9, 2004 at 10:40 am

In Novemebr 2003, with the help of the Town of Bristol, the Bristol Pastime Theatre Foundation purchased the Pastime Theatre. The Foundation operates with the mission to revitalize and sustain the historic Pastime Theatre as a community-based center for performing arts and cinema. We are currently in the design development phase and have hired the architectural firm of Wilson Butler, Boston, MA to perform preliminary design work. We are actively raising funds for the renovation/rehabilitation of the theatre and hope to re-open in December 2006. Recent grant awards have included The National Trust For Historic Preservation, The Rhode Island Foundation, and Preserve Rhode Island.
It should be noted the 1934 Art Deco Theatre was designed by Providence based architect, Francis Chiaverini.
