The Vintage Theater in Scranton closed its doors for good this past weekend. But before it did it hosted one last event, a party celebrating everything The Vintage meant to anyone who took advantage of the wonderful things it had to offer. I first got involved with The Vintage through the Bloggers' Roundtable back in September 2011, at the invitation of Rich Howells. So it was fitting that I found myself in The Vintage this past Saturday evening talking with Rich Howells in the final hours of the place's existence.
We reminisced a bit, but eventually the conversation turned to a new project of his that was just about ready to launch, a site called NEPA Scene that would bring together blog posts, web postings, and original material into one central site that would present every facet of arts, music, entertainment, and other happenings throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania. That site has now gone live!
From the "About" page:
NEPA Scene covers everything from music and movies to food and books, with an emphasis on artists and entertainers located in or traveling through Northeastern Pennsylvania, though its coverage area extends to Philadelphia, New York, and New Jersey. Instead of simply reporting on creative people, the site also works directly with them to share content and spread the word about everything that’s happening in Scranton, Wilkes-Barre, and beyond.
