THE HISTORIC BLAIRSTOWN THEATRE - BLAIRSTOWN, NJ
When Dave and Kacey Cinnater found out 30 Main Street was for sale, they jumped at the opportunity. For 10 years they have been hosting private music parties at their 100 acre farm in beautiful Stillwater NJ 'with headliners, as Railroad Earth, Chris Smithers and Larry Keel. With the music quality and quantity growing, a bigger more accessible venue was needed, which brings us to the Historic Blairstown Theatre
Built originally as a livery, 30 Main Street has worn many faces. In 1913 Robert Roy and Raymond Smith opened the doors to a silent movie house, dubbing the theatre Roy's Hall. Silent pictures were shown twice a week until a fire damaged the building in 1917. The theater was restored and reopened showing silent films until the invasion of the "Talkies" in 1930. When the flood of 1955 drowned much of Main Street, the theatre on the hill survived, however the competition from TV was to great and the theatre closed it's doors in 1961.
Nestled in the hills of Warren County the acoustically superb Historic Blairstown Theatre is located on Historic Main Street surrounded by charming shops, galleries and restaurants. The Grand Opening with a performance by Railroad Earth front man Todd Sheaffer, sold out the 190 seat auditorium. Other acts who graced the stage were comedian Gallagher, singer songwriter Kenny Rankin, and children's artists Brady Rymer and Mr. Ray, with upcoming performances by Citizen Cope's organist John Ginty and the Kathy Philips Trio, Cd Release party for Patrick Fitzsimmons, formally of From Good Homes a special holiday production of a Christmas Carol, written by local playwright Michael DeMaio, and a benefit concert for local internet station HomeGrownRadioNJ.org. Besides theater and music local artists will have the opportunity to display their work adding to the atmosphere of the cozy art house.
The Historic Blairstown Theatre with it's bright blue facade braved, fire, flood and technology, and like the Phoenix which rose from the ashes , the lights are ready to shine on a new era of entertainment...
