MARIETTA, PA — The Marietta Theatre has been purchased by Marietta Restoration Associates.

The theater, opened in 1914, was the oldest operating motion picture theater in Penna and among the oldest in the United States when it closed in 1997.

The Association is a non profit organization which helps to restore old buildings in this small town. They will hold public meetings to determine future uses for the theater. They expect to have the theater open for tours during the town’s annual Candlelight tour on Dec. 4th.

However the seats, organ, and most of the furnishings have been removed.
