I’m still as busy as ever but how can I NOT blog about the opening of our much-missed, better-than-ever historic Greenbelt Theatre, under exciting new management??
The soft opening was Friday May 1 and as executive director Caitlin McGrath said after the firemen arrived between shows (thank to an overzealous smoke detector being set off by the popcorn machine). that’s why we have soft openings. Yes, wouldn’t want the glitches to make themselves known for the grand opening, a MAJOR EVENT coming up Friday, May 29, to feature period films, period dress, and I’m told, period movie prices. And probably lots more. The period is, of course, 1938, the year the theater opened.
New lobby looks great for opening night!

As gorgeous as the lobby is, the absolute shocker is the gorgeousness of the bathrooms – the shock is in the contrast with the “before” versions, photos of which I’m in search of. Plus, the ladies and men’s rooms have switched places, so we volunteers did their best to alert theater-goers to that change and prevent shockers of another type.
