“This is an important effort to restore something more than just buildings, these theaters are a part of what makes the Vineyard community so special.

We want these buildings to be more than just movie theaters. We want them to fill community needs presently not being met from having the best in film presentation to lecture series, live performances and school events.”
— Mark Snider, Founding Director

“I saw lots of teddy bear movies here. I saw lots of Disney movies here; I saw E.T. for the first time here. I also saw Heartburn here, which I wrote the soundtrack for, and Working Girl, too.”
