Denis Theatre To Host Films, Fun This Summer

The economy may be down and out, but fundraising efforts and support for Mt. Lebanon's former Denis Theatre is stronger than ever, says Denis board member Ann Kemerer. "We are busy with First Friday, theater cleanups, and yes, we are bringing movies back to Mt. Lebanon starting in late June," Kemerer said.

The Denis opened in 1938 and closed in 2004. Mt. Lebanon Commissioner Raja bought the property in 2007 for $668,500. He leases it to the Denis Theatre Foundation, a non-profit group which seeks to reopen the Denis as an arts center. The foundation will need at least $3 million to see their dreams realized. They've raised over $300,000 so far.
