Hanover Theater to be restored

posted by HanoverTheater on October 16, 2007 at 7:42 am

HANOVER, PA – The Hanover Theater has been sold to Historic Hanover Theater, LLC, a group that will be restoring it and operating it as a Performing Arts Theater. Built in 1928 as a Vaudeville and silent movie house by MGM, the theater was originally named the State Theater.

In the late 30’s or early 40’s sound projectors were added and the theater was used as a movie theater up until December of 1986 when it was closed and sold to new owners who planned on converting the building into an antiques mall. The conversion was never completed and the theater has been used as a warehouse for 21 years. The anticipated opening date of the restored Hanover Theater is December of 2008.
