The Hopewell Theater Reopens, Announces Upcoming Schedule

(HOPEWELL, NJ) -- The landmark Hopewell Theater has re-opened after undergoing an extensive eight-month fit-out renovation, which includes a new lobby, box office, concession stand, as well as a state-of-the-art cinema system with surround sound, prep kitchen, and expanded theater seating area and balcony. Now fully refitted as a deluxe showcase for music, cinema and the performing arts, the Hopewell Theater will serve as an intimate arts venue and gathering place for the greater Hopewell Valley area.

The theater lobby now features a full concession stand where patrons can purchase gourmet small plates and deserts along with traditional theater snacks such as popcorn and candy.  The Theater has hand-picked its menu from a variety of local, favorite restaurants that will present special dishes at the concession stand, including Brick Farm Market, The Bent Spoon and The Peasant Grill. Patrons can enjoy a meal or snack during the show in comfortable cabaret-style banquette seats, leather chairs with tables, or traditional plush fixed theater seats. The theater’s sophisticated interior design is a mix of urban-style meets classic country with a sense of casual elegance.

The theater’s expanded vision includes a carefully-curated programming schedule that will showcase independent films, some followed by Director Q&A or paired with a reading or concert, and live music on a weekly basis performed by local and regional singer-songwriters.  There will also be TED-style talks and a variety of discussions from books to visual arts to self-improvement and wellness.  Audiences will have access to talent through the intimate productions offered.  Artists will have access to the theater which will be rented out during the day to encourage adult artists, musicians, filmmakers and artist networks who need a home to either practice, show work, or come together to create.

The theater’s fall program schedule features a unique blend of musical genres, movies and multimedia experiences including the 2017 Sundance Film Festival Short Film Tour, the Alloy Orchestra playing musical accompaniment to the classic film “The Lost World”, performances by literary songsmith Dan Bern, Cajun/Creole musicians The Bunkhouse Boys, and more.
