|Home: BigScreen Journal - Charlottesville, VA: Vinegar Hill Theatre Closes|
The Vinegar Hill Theatre in Charlottesville, Virginia is closing today, according to an article in The Hook:
After 32 years, the lights are going down on Vinegar Hill Theatre for good.
"I knew this was coming, I just didn't know when," says theater manager Hain Laramore, who started working for the theater as a teenager 20 years ago. The last evening show will happen this coming Thursday with the scheduled screenings of Religulous, and while the doors will stay open through the weekend for film fest activities, after Sunday the lights won't go back up.
Laramore says thinning crowds made keeping the theater afloat harder and harder for owner Ann Porotti, who opened Vinegar Hill with her then-husband, Chief Gordon, in 1976 (the same year the couple opened Fellini's restaurant on Second and Market streets.)
