As you may know, the Larchmont Playhouse is up for sale – and there could potentially be a bid from a developer who won’t preserve this 1930’s era theatre, and what many of us find to be a great community asset.
The Picture House in Pelham, an historic theatre built in 1921 that was successfully transformed in 2005 into a single screen theatre and center for the film arts, has started a Kickstarter campaign to see if Larchmont residents are interested in having The Picture House help save the theater.
One idea they are considering: one film center in two historic theaters 5 miles apart, linked by Metro North.
This Kickstarter page provides a lot more information. This may be a great opportunity for us all.
