Stay Tuned for More Movies at the Soo Theatre!

February 21, 2016

We were excited to bring movies back to the Soo Theatre last fall. We met many folks who hadn’t been in the building since it closed as a movie theatre. Many parents who went to the Soo Theatre as kids brought **their** kids to share that go-downtown-to-the-movies experience. And for a few kids, it was their first time ever seeing a movie on the big screen!

Now it is winter and the theatre is a bit too chilly to be comfortable. As winter turns to spring, look for more Movies at the Soo Theatre.
