The Larchmont Playhouse is for sale. There is an offer on the building right now with plans that we believe DO NOT include preserving the building or using the space as the cultural hub it should be - - and the seller will decide In July [Please note: we won an extension thanks to your support! Keep up the great work!] . Please help us send a message to the sellers to KEEP THE MOVIES IN LARCHMONT!
The Larchmont Playhouse has been a entertainment mainstay and a commercial anchor of downtown Larchmont since 1931. It is an essential part of Larchmont life: an historic, human-scale theater that is friendly, safe, and walkable from just about anywhere in town. It has pride of place in the hearts and memories of most Larchmont residents, who saw first movies there as young children, went without chaperones as tweens and on dates as teens, and later return with their own families, or enjoy matinees as seniors.
Now that rich history is in grave peril, and we need your help.
A group of Larchmont residents are banding together to try and raise the funds necessary to make a competitive bid to keep the Playhouse as a cultural center (to pledge, email SaveLarchmontMovies@gmail.com). Please pledge whatever you can and please sign this petition to let the Playhouse owner know that Larchmont residents and friends want a vibrant arts destination in our town, not another office building, bank or drugstore.
Don't let the 85th year of the Playhouse be the last.
We hope our collective voices, plus the pledges needed for a competitive bid, will KEEP THE MOVIES IN LARCHMONT for our families and enliven our village for generations to come - - but we need to hear from you right away, before the sale deadline. Please pledge if you can, please SIGN NOW, and thank you for supporting The Larchmont Playhouse!
