Concrete Theatre reopens Feb. 12

After months of waiting, the Concrete Theatre is back in business.

Since they purchased the downtown Concrete landmark building in fall 2009, Valerie Stafford and Fred West have been methodically renovating the structure to enhance all visitors’ experiences, whether they’re catching a movie or watching a play.

Stafford launches into an impressive list of improvements whenever anyone asks her what she and Fred have been doing with the interior.

“We put in a SurroundSound system. We expanded the space between the seat rows. The lobby is being repainted. There’s new carpet in the center aisle. We’re adding drapes to the side walls. And cleaning, cleaning, cleaning,” she laughs.

Beginning Feb. 12, movies will be shown on Fridays at 7:30 p.m., Saturdays at 5 and 7:30 p.m., and Sundays at 4 p.m. Ticket prices are $6 for general admission; moviegoers 65 and over or 12 and under pay only $5. The Sunday matinees shave an additional $1 off those prices.

The February movie schedule is:

Feb. 12 and 14: “Some Like it Hot”
Feb. 13: “Leap Year”
Feb. 19–21: “The Princess and the Frog”
Feb. 26–28: “Sherlock Holmes”

And yes, there will be concessions.
