Coronavirus

Little Art Theatre to Close Temporarily

September 15, 2020

Due to the ongoing COVID pandemic, the board of the Little Art Theatre has decided to close temporarily. The board of trustees’ responsibility to this venerable cinematic institution means that we must act to protect and preserve the theatre for the future.

In July the Little Art reopened to significantly reduced audiences. It has become clear that staying open risks burning through the reserves of the non-profit organization. Preparations for reopening were thorough, but the board did not anticipate the public’s discomfort with in-person screenings in the current global pandemic, nor the continued rates of infection in the region.

The board plans to monitor the COVID situation to choose the right time to reopen in 2021, when patrons feel more comfortable attending screenings in person. Several board members, along with Executive Director Jenny Cowperthwaite Ruka, have communicated with staff about an indefinite furlough.

The board wants to express its gratitude to the Little Art’s wonderful and hardworking staff and volunteers who made screening films in recent weeks possible and safe and to loyal members and partners who continue to support the theatre. We look forward to seeing you at the movies sometime next year!

The Little Art Theatre’s mission is to provide an experience that entertains, informs, and inspires: www.littleart.com/about-the-little-art.
