Grand reopening Gala

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Grand Theatre opened in 1924. It was still operating a movie theatre in 1951.

After closing this theatre became home to the The Road Company as a successful playhouse. Sadly the auditorium roof collapsed on May 14, 2010 due to a particularly heavy snowfall over the winter. All that could be saved was the front of the building.

It was rebuilt, and re-opened on February 16, 2013.

Sadly this is more than just a buckle in the roof as the previous article implies. The chances of this being repaired in a month’s time seem pretty slim looking at these photos: View link

That’s probably it for this place unless they have a big insurance policy. Sounds like good things were happening. So this is really a shame.
