Seating capacity seems too small for the Darress in Boonton (which otherwise fits several of the listing points), anybody care to speculate what theatre this is? I would guess it’s not a movie theatre.

it could never have been a movie house i do not think, to small for any serious theater

The theater is the Nous theater, guys – not the Darress. Built in 1913, it has a lot of charm and is fantastic condition. Howard’s a great guy to work with. Set up more for live performance than movies, but if that’s what you’re looking for, you can’t go wrong with this one – I’ve checked it out and I’d give it two thumbs up.

Hello DPEEL,

Do you have more information on the theatre and it’s owner? I am curious as to why he is pulling out only one year after putting a major investment into the theatre. I might be interested in this place.
