MT. LEBANON, PA — The Denis Quad is planning to open for movies following upcoming renovations.

Turns out you can’t keep a good theater down. Or dark.

Plans were announced yesterday to raise $3 million to renovate the 71-year-old Denis Theatre in the heart of Mt. Lebanon’s business district. It has been closed for nearly four years and sat vacant along Washington Road, where passersby hoped for a rebirth but peered in the doors and saw mounds of trash.

This is great news. The Denis is a cornerstone of the Mt. Lebanon business district.

Community spaces are springing up all over W. Pa. McKees ROcks is currently redeloping several including the space once housing the Roxian Theater.

A win-win situation for both theater buffs and preservationists.
