The Tioga Theater suffered flood damage as the Susquehanna overflowed its banks and ravaged the village of Owego in Sept. 2011. The Theater was closed for several weeks, with the marquee holding only this message: “Coming Soon: The Help.” Help came, and the theater is open again, still under renovation. The owner is committed, courageous, and is to be commended.

One more note on the Tioga: it’s in a small town, and with only the larger (original) auditorium equipped with surround sound and a huge wide screen, the owner/manager opens that venue to the film that sells the largest number of tickets. The smaller add-on screening rooms play to the smaller number of tickets. If you want to see the blockbuster in stereo, you’d better hope that film sold the most tix!

As I was driving through Owego on my way to Ithaca, i glimpsed this old theater and did a u turn to take a closer look. Sure enough, it is OPEN though I didn’t have a chance to look inside. Still happy to see that it is still there especially considering the flood damage earlier in the year.

The Tioga just started a “Kickstarter” campaign to raise funds for Digital Projection.

Although I’m not a resident of Owego, NY, I wish the community all the best of luck in raising the funding for the necessary conversion to digital projection. Both of the independent, non-profit theatres in my area had to do it, and I’m glad to see that they’re both still operating as a result. It’s hard when a cherished movie theatre bites the dust.

Again, all the best of luck to the Owego community.
