Wow what a weekend! Our new location on Water St. was open this weekend for Roots & Blues and we were all on cloud nine.
After months of construction the team worked non-stop to get our space ready for the festival. We’re so proud of the new theater space so far and are eternally grateful to the many volunteers who helped us with all the hard work it took to prepare the space. From hanging curtains to painting, heavy lifting and never ending cleaning, the space was completed just in time.
THANK YOU so much to everyone who pitched in and showed up when we needed help. It’s incredibly humbling and it means the world to us.
Although we have more work to do, we debuted our new sound system by Clair, revealed all of our new theater seating, concession equipment, fabulous bathrooms and stage to the guests of the festival. Special thanks to the Tell Family who own our building and have supported us through the process, Dave Schreck the contractor who is as devoted to our project as we are, to our families who have put up with endless hours working on all things Zoe, all of the Roots & Blues coordinators, volunteers and sound guys…you’re all awesome, Good Spirits for staffing a flawless bar and to our investors who continue to support our vision and believe in our dreams. Also a big thanks to Taylor Kinney who surprised us with a special appearance on Saturday night and graciously took a million photos with fans!
We aren’t officially open yet on Water Street and are still constructing the distillery and restaurant so please stay tuned for news on that as we progress. In the mean time, we will be open at our James St. location until further notice showing films at regular showtimes.
Cheers to the future Zoetropolis Cinema Stillhouse because the best is yet to come.
