Tiny Theatre open to public

T he Tiny Theatre in Poultney has opened its doors to the public.

Previous operation of the theatre, which holds film showings and other events, only allowed those who had purchased memberships to attend movies.

A new licensing system, however, has recently allowed the venue to advertise to the public and allow anyone to come in and watch a show. The theatre tested this new structure on Saturday with a screening of the movie Looper, which non-members could watch for $3, organizers said.

“It’s decent entertainment at way below the normal price,” said theatre board member Seth Carpenter, adding that the closest movie theater to Poultney is at least half an hour away and would feature expensive tickets.

Though Green Mountain College does not own the Tiny Theatre, it is actively involved with helping the spot stay afloat through helping with licensing fees and other financial aid. Carpenter said the student senate at the nearby college recently gave the theater a $4000 grant.

However, the board is hoping new organization and higher attendance will allow the theater to survive on its own.

The seating capacity allows for around 40 people to enjoy shows at the theater, and there is also locally-made Vermont soda for sale, as well as water, popcorn and candy. For more information about upcoming movies or events at Tiny Theatre, visit its Facebook page or call 802-287-6005.
