FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
THE HUNTRIDGE FOUNDATION INVITES THE COMMUNITY TO CELEBRATE THE HISTORY OF THE HUNTRIDGE THEATRE
Blackbird Studios, Las Vegas, NV — The Huntridge Foundation is excited to announce that it will hold its first community fundraiser at Blackbird Studios located at 1551 S. Commerce Street, Suite A, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, November 9, 2012.
The Foundation invites Las Vegans to share the history of the Huntridge Theatre with fellow theatre supporters. JH Photography will be documenting the community’s personal stories and memories of the theatre, through an oral history project conducted on site. Audio and visual exhibits will feature some of the Foundation’s researched archives and recently photographed theatre memorabilia.
Local performers will entertain guests while they enjoy crafted beers from Ellis Island Brewery and tapas by Firefly. Community sponsor Tipsy Truffles will offer handmade desserts. Sign manufacturing guru Yesco, will have a display to illuminate the art gallery.
“We are delighted to welcome Las Vegans to the mixer to share fond memories of the Huntridge Theatre — whether they saw cheap films and Saturday morning animated cartoons during the movie house era or energetic punk rock shows in the 1990s there,” said Daniel Roberts, President of The Huntridge Foundation. “We also encourage newer residents who may not have experienced the theatre firsthand when it was open, to attend and learn about the history behind the Las Vegas landmark.”
Doors open at 6 p.m.
Event will last until 10 p.m.
