The Park Theatre, a 1400 seat house was built in 1931 and had been an active performing arts venue for many years. The space also once housed a museum highlighting the history of embroidery in northern New Jersey. In recent years it had fallen into disuse and in need of restoration.
Under the management of John Lant, the Park Theatre (Park Performing Arts Center) is currently being refurbished, and is again becoming an active arts center, with musicals scheduled to be produced in the spring. Along with the opening of the art gallery, there will also be an open house with live music in the lounge and visitors can tour the theatre.
