“We’re looking forward to getting that back up and hopefully, we’ll be able to have some movies in there, some shows, some concerts, all of the above,” said Drew Shortt, Lebanon Town Manager.
The theater was open until the early 1990s and in early 2020 renovations started on the building by removing the marquee from the theater.
