The Durand-Hedden House will present an exhibit entitled “The Maplewood Theater: Its Forgotten Saga” on October 26 from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.
According to the Durand-Hedden website:
For over 100 years, movies have played a part in the lives of Americans, entertaining, moving and inspiring us. The Maplewood Theater, built in 1927, has existed for much of this time – first as a large combined vaudeville-movie house, then a famed theatrical stage, and finally neighborhood movie house, now a multi-plex.
Stop by Durand-Hedden to view this historical transformation in the exhibit: The Maplewood Theater: Its Forgotten Saga. Also view short silent comedies that tickled the fancy of Maplewoodians in the 1920s or settle in to watch the rousing award winning film of the musical 1776, which retells the struggle of our founding fathers to declare independence from Britain. Free popcorn will be available for movie-goers at the Country store “concession stand,” which will also be selling classic candy, original Maplewood Theater movie posters, and more!
