Chatham’s Crandell Theatre Reopens At Last

Rural Intelligence Parties and Openings
The official ribbon cutting was on Friday night and the tv crews were there to take in the spectacle as the Crandell Theatre, dark since the untimely death of owner Tony Quirino last January, reopened with Toy Story 3.  Crandell loyalists were relieved to find that, as promised, the only immediately discernible change—tickets are still $5 for adults, $4 for kids—is that eighty years of gum has been removed from the floor. Then on Sunday, a beautiful afternoon, the Chatham Film Club, which now owns the theater, resumed its weekly screenings.  Film Club member James Schamus, of Ghent (who heads Focus Features), was greeted to thunderous applause by a full house when he explained that the movie that was about to screen, The Kids Are All Right, starring Annette Bening, Julianne Moore, and Mark Ruffalo “is opening this weekend in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and Chatham.”
