Bellevue Theater History Event Wednesday Night

By on January 17, 2018

Bellevue TheaterApologies for the short notice on this, but the Montclair History Center, which is run by Verona resident Jane Eliasof, is hosting a special presentation tonight (Wednesday, January 17) on the past, present and future of the Bellevue Theater.

Entitle “Bellevue Theater: Fade to Black or Double Feature?”, the event will be held at the Montclair History Center’s Crane House and Historic YWCA at 110 Orange Road in Montclair, at 7 p.m. The theater closed abruptly in mid-November after 95 years of showing movies, most recently as part of the Bow Ties Cinemas chain. It was a big destination for Verona families because Verona hasn’t had its own movie theater since the 1980s and Cinema 23, located in Cedar Grove, closed in 2010.

The Montclair History Center calls the Bellevue “an architectural anchor of the Upper Montclair business district”. Tonight’s slide show will chronicle the theater’s development and talk about what the future might hold for the Bellevue as it nears its centennial.

The suggested donation for the talk is $5.
