We, too, have a Center Theatre. It’s a 1940’s era Art Deco movie house in the small town of Dover-Foxcroft, Maine. It sat vacant for the past 30 years, except for several small businesses that occupied the lobby area. A group of folks in the area got together, formed a non-profit corporation and started raising money to purchase the building and transform it into a performing arts center. We are seven years into the project, have bought the property and are poised to begin our third phase of restoration. At the same time, we’ve been organizing programming events at different venues around town, occassionally in the theater itself. It’s very slow going, but
satisfying, if you can can keep the energy up and keep pushing forward despite the hard fund-raising environment. Good luck with your project. There’s lot’s of people out there just like you trying to save these old theaters and reinvigorated their towns and neighborhoods. Bob Winters:
