A community group that has secured the right to purchase the Rosendale Theatre is holding an information and organizational meeting Thursday.

The Rosendale Theatre Collective has until mid-April to raise a total of $600,000. The community is invited to hear an update on the purchase and participate in talks about fundraisers and planning for the theater.

Originally a firehouse, The Cacchio family bought and renovated what was then a defunct casino and turned it into the theatre that stands today. Showing films and live performances since 1949.

Being on
e of the last single screen family run theaters in the country, I think this would be a good reason to get out Thursday night. The meeting is at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Rosendale Recreation Center on Route 32.

Once again; thank you to the Cacchio family for the decades of good Theatre for the community.

The Rosendale Theatre Collective has been chosen as a final contestant for a $50,000 Pepsi Refresh grant. Funding will support the group's acquisition of the Rosendale Movie Theatre and serve to sustain Rosendale's Main Street businesses. The grant is determined by daily votes - whoever gets the most votes, wins the grant! So, we are rallying our community to go to the Pepsi site to vote every day of the month of April.
