After coming back from a trip to NYC (by the way, posts about various museum exhibits there will be posted here over the next few days), I was excited to see an ad in CP for the "Hollywood Theater". I assumed it had just opened, but I later learned it has been open for a couple of months.
The Hollywood Theater is in Dormont. From Shadyside, where I live, it is about a 20 minute drive. And well worth it. A non-profit has renovated an old movie thater there and is showing a broad range of films at low prices.....6 dollars! This week's schedule includes The Big Lebowski, Breakfast at Tiffany's and the Manchurian Candidate.
A terrific addition to the local film scene! I used to go to this theater before it closed in 1998. It was beautiful but really run down. The residents of Dormont did a great thing in getting this place renovated and up and running again!
