What’s with the sign? A part of our history is back…the original Playhouse sign! A big thanks to Dave Tomaszewski for storing it all these years. Dave explains this sign was erected in the 1950s when the theatre’s name was changed from the Strand Theatre to the Play House (2 words). He later made a copy of this original, which hung on the building for 20 years while Dave and Tammy owned it until the facsimile rotted and had to be taken down. While the reproduced sign didn’t survive, the original sign survives. What are we going to do with it? Where will it go? Stay tuned…..

Kenneth Branagh (Dead Again, Dunkirk) wrote and directed this semi-autobiographical tale of his boyhood and his working-class family experiencing the tumultuous late 1960s in Northern Ireland. Acclaimed actress Dame Judi Dench plays (Oscar buzz-worthy) Kenneth’s grandmother (we can forgive her for Cats). This feature was filmed in black and white. Watch the trailer.

Showing Next…Coming Soon…

Marvel is returning to the Playhouse with the latest Spider-man feature. With Spider-Man’s identity now revealed, Peter asks Doctor Strange for help. When a spell goes wrong, dangerous foes from other worlds start to appear, forcing Peter to discover what it truly means to be Spider-Man. Join us for the opening weekend.

Steven Spielberg is known for providing us stories across all genres, which there are too many to list. There was one genre mission…musicals. Well, not anymore as he adds to his filmography. Yes, you read that correctly. Spielberg is reimagining the 1957 Broadway hit which spawned the 1961 movie smash hit. Oscar-winner for 1961’s Best Actress in a Supporting Role, Rita Moreno is cast in this version. With the recent passing of the legendary Broadway composer, Stephen Sondheim, this retelling is even more poignant.
