Celebrating a century of memories through film and stage

On Dec. 31, 1914, the doors of the Sayre Theatre were quietly opened to the public, perhaps a dry run for the official Grand Opening the next day. This year, the Bradford County Regional Arts Council (BCRAC) and the Sayre Theatre Centennial Committee invite you to join them 100 years later as they celebrate the past and herald the future of the Theatre on Dec. 31, 2014.

The doors open at 8:30 p.m. for an evening of fun, food and entertainment. Justin Shaw and Friends will be joining them to present “The Sound of Cinema”, through the years. The First Lighting ceremony for their new chandeliers will take place, as well as proclamations by Sayre Borough Mayor Denny Thomas and State Representative Tina Pickett.

If you remember when music was the cornerstone of the film era, then the Sayre Theatre’s 100th Birthday Celebration is just the place for you this New Year’s Eve. Emceed by Brandon Dickerson, come along and listen to the songs that warmed your heart and made your favorite films come to life! With solos, standards, and large company numbers, this formal evening of song will take you on a musical journey you don’t want to miss.

Tickets are $25 a person and are now on sale at the Sayre Theatre during the week between the hours of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., or by calling the BCRAC office at (570) 268-ARTS (2787). All ticket proceeds will be directed to the marquee fund. Tickets are limited and they encourage you to get your tickets early.
