Announcement: The Vintage Theater in Scranton is closing

This message was posted by the proprietors of the Vintage Theater in Scranton today:

It is with bittersweet sentiment that the Vintage Theater will be saying goodbye to 119 Penn Avenue! Due to circumstances beyond our control we will be holding the last event in the current location on First Friday, June 1st 2012. As we look for our new home, upcoming events may be moved to other locations, we will be sure to keep you all informed. Anyone who is interested in helping us through this transition is encouraged to contact us as soon as possible. Look for updates on how you can help!We thank you so much for your support as we continue to move onward and upward! We hope to see you all at our remaining few events on Penn Av!

The Vintage Theater has served as the venue for many Blogging-related events in the past year, including the Bloggers' Roundtable, the Bluekey Tweetup, Pecha Kucha Night, and the Scranton StorySlam. Proprietor Conor O'Brien always provided a welcoming atmosphere and a highly versatile multi-functional art space. While we will miss the Vintage Theater, we look forward to seeing what Conor has planned next!
