Thank you, Bethel Drive-in for a great retro-movie summer!
Our gratitude and appreciation to the Tomaszewskis for having the Playhouse Movie Theatre persons help at the Concession Bus. We had a blast.
If you weren’t able to make it to the drive-in this season, put it on your bucket-list for next season.

The Playhouse board would like to thank all members for their engagement in this issue, and for the overwhelming support, the members have shown for the Playhouse and this initiative to establish more flexibility in fundraising to finance the operations and improvement of the theater. While the coronavirus has left the Playhouse darkened for a time, we are working during this intermission to ensure that the future of the Playhouse is even brighter!

And there is more…
100 years and still going strong. 2019 marked the start of our centennial. COVID-19 has placed all our planned celebrations on-hold, for now.
