BEDFORD, N.Y. -- News of Bow Tie Cinemas opting not to stay at the Bedford Playhouse was greeted with disappointment from folks down the street at the Bedford Free Library.
Library staffer Margaret Scott, who lives nearby in Bedford Hills, called it a "lovely little theater." Scott also said she was sad it is leaving.
Additionally, Scott brought up a survey for the future of the space from John Farr. He is seeking public input on whether to add a "not-for-profit arts house" to the theater space, which would be similar to Pleasantville's Jacob Burns Film Center. Scott also expressed interest in Farr's concept.
A link to the survey has been posted on the library's website.
Reacting to the news, staffer Ann Haney described herself as being "saddened." A former Bedford resident -- she now resides in Bridgeport, Conn. -- Haney recalled the location's convenience and availability of new releases.
