Friends Of Bedford Playhouse Hope For Theater's Second Act

BEDFORD, N.Y. -- Theater lovers unite. 

The Friends of Bedford Playhouse, a grassroots organization committed to transforming the Village's historic theater into a vibrant cultural destination, needs your help ... sooner rather than later.

The goal is to create a community hub for local gatherings, special events and educational programs relating to film and the arts.

John Farr, founder and chairman of Friends of Bedford Playhouse, will speak about the ambitious plans to breathe new life into this community treasure Feb. 4,  at 7 p.m.  at the Katonah Village Library.

The goal -- to raise 2.5 million by March 1 -- will be discussed in the Garden Room. The vision: To renovate and transform the Playhouse into a state-of-the-art cinema, housing a large-screen theater, a smaller, more intimate second-screen theater, flexible space for small gatherings and screenings, and a lobby café serving high-end coffee, wine, beer, and snacks.

Friends of Bedford Playhouse believe that consistently high-quality film and concession offerings will attract viewers and visitors, as well as contribute to the vitality of the village.
