Lafayette Theater Celebrates 90 Years: 25 cents Admission

The historic Lafayette Theater will hold a Gala 90th Anniversary Celebration on March 2, 2014 at 2 p.m., featuring:

Twenty-five cents admission to the theater, the same as it was in 1924, for the screening of the 75th Anniversary Edition of “The Wizard Of Oz” in 3-D, a live performance of Abbott & Costello’s classic comedy skit “Who’s on First” and a video glimpse of Suffern in the 1920s.

The Historic Lafayette Theater is one of the oldest movie palaces in the country still screening first run and classic movies. The Theater opened its doors on March 3, 1924, showing the silent film “Scaramouche.” It has been named by USA Today as one of the Top Ten Classic Movie Theaters in the Country.

All tickets for the March 2 celebration will be 25 cents at the door, with no pre-sale tickets available. Doors will open at 1 p.m.

The Lafayette Theater is located at 97 Lafayette Avenue, Suffern, N.Y.
