|Home: BigScreen Journal - Vancouver, WA: Kiggins Theatre Reopens September 8, 2011|
The historic Kiggins Theatre in Vancouver, Washington reopened to customers again today, September 8, 2011, with showings of E.T. The Extra Terrestrial. The theater was built in 1936 but closed in May 2010. The building's owner decided to reopen the historic location, and according to an article in the Vancouver Business Journal, it was quite an education for him:
Bill Leigh, current owner of the recently restored theater, said he wants to provide that same great escape for the next generation of moviegoers. Having owned several properties in Washington and Oregon, Leigh said he loves renovating old buildings. However, operating a cinema would be something completely new.
"I thought, it couldn’t be too tough to do a theater," said Leigh. "That's when the real education began."
