While I know that in one case the theatre was built as a movie theatre and am not sure about the other one, I would suggest two organizations that you might look at. The first is the Orpheum Theatre here in Chatham, Massachusetts (http://www.chathamorpheum.org/). They are not open yet but well under way in a project to reopen as an independent film venue. I don’t know whether their business plan includes other types of programming. The other organization is the Colonial Theatre in Bethlehem, NH (http://bethlehemcolonialtheatre.org/). It is primarily a summer venue offering a broad range of programming with strong local support.
