We need to keep improving our heritage theatre facility. The purchase of the adjacent store space ensures that there will not be another vacant storefront on the street. This new space gives the opportunity to create a new lobby and concession area that will have appropriate work and lounge areas. Most significant will be the addition of accessible washrooms on the main level. Our tiny kitchen must meet public health and safety requirements. The community room level needs to be completely accessible and washrooms and lobby concession need updating. These improvements will meet the increasing family and small group demand for rental space for a wide variety of events. The updates will increase our programming potential such as wine and beer tastings, food tastings and culinary demonstrations/events in conjunction with film and concert events. Dinner and a movie events will become doable again. Our theatre is a community place that brings people together and we want our facility to be safe and welcoming for all.
