While it is unlikely that the Bradford County Regional Arts Council’s Historic Theaters will be open for regular movies before 2021, the BCRAC theaters are still alive. We are still working to bring you movies at our Drive-In and Lawn Chair Cinemas, popcorn at our Curbside Popcorn events, and live music events in different venue settings.
This Sunday, Oct. 25, Oktoberfest is coming to the Sayre Theatre Lawn with local music, bratwurst, and local brews. Bradford County’s Logan Route will be performing at the afternoon event scheduled to be held from 3 to 5 pm. Local drink from the Bluestone Brewery and Deep Roots Hard Cider will be available, along with hot bratwurst, hot dogs, popcorn balls, and hot cider and soda. Admission to the event is $10 at the door. The event is planned to be held outside on the lawn, but will be moved indoors if weather conditions dictate. This will be a socially distanced event and mask will be required when moving about. BCRAC will be following PA guidelines on capacity and tickets will be limited.
Come out, enjoy some time celebrating, help out your local theatre, and a local musician. And remember, this too shall pass. And don’t forget to stop by on Friday to pick up your curbside popcorn perfect for a Friday night football snack or snuggle up under a blanket during our Lawn Chair Cinema on Friday – Hocus Pocus in Sayre on the lawn and Drive-In in Wyalusing at Grovedale Winery this week starting at 7 pm in both places.
Check out the BCRAC’s Water Lantern Float on the Susquehanna River this weekend as well. This is a free event beginning at 5 pm at the Tom Fairchild Memorial (formally Riverside) Park with live music from Kevin Dupe at 5:30, lantern launch upstream beginning at 6:45, and a free community movie at 7:30. Proceeds from this unique event will support the BCRAC, with a portion of the lantern sales also going to support Breast Cancer month in honor of Towanda’s J. Andrew Morrow Elementary School principal, Karen Beirne-Getz, who lost her battle to this disease this summer.
For more information on any of these events and others, check out the BCRAC Facebook page, or call us at 570-268-2787. If you are looking for ways to support your local historic theaters, check out our ongoing virtual Cinema. Half of the revenue generated from the virtual cinema is given back to the theater. We thank you for your continued support and hope to see you soon.
