Chatham's Crandell Theatre reopens
Shrishti Mathew reports in the Times Union that the Crandell Theatre in Chatham opens this weekend after 15 months closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “We have a very loyal and committed community, with the Crandell being a small-town theater on Main Street,” said Annie Brody, the theatre's executive director. “And its importance to the community is not only in terms of its cultural offerings, but in terms of its presence at night, with people coming and going, and also serving the local economy.” The theatre will have eight screenings of four curated commercial and independent films on Thursday through Sunday. This weekend the theatre is showing both the new independent film "The Truffle Hunters" and the older, blockbuster "Jaws." The entire staff has been vaccinated, and the theatre is not yet selling concessions, due to the ongoing pandemic. Read more about this story in the Times Union.
