Filmmaker Ken Burns to Appear at Latchis Theatre’s Grand Re-Opening October 19, 7:30 p.m.

Join renowned documentarian and filmmaker Ken Burns for the Grand Re-Opening of the Latchis Theatre following two and a half months of renovation and restoration in the historic auditorium.

Long-time friend of the Latchis Theatre, Ken Burns will preview an entire episode of The Roosevelts: An Intimate History Episode 5 1933-1939  “The Rising Road” which focuses on the late 1930’s (same as the Latchis!).  He will introduce the segment and answer questions afterwards.

This is a world premiere, as the series won’t be released until 2014. 

Ken Burns’ The Roosevelts is a benefit for The Campaign for The Heavens and The Earth.  This $550,000 effort is transforming the historic art deco theatre with comfortable new seating, a refreshed zodiac array on a midnight blue and starry sky, ADA and safety upgrades, and enhanced lighting throughout.  With less than $49,000 to go, donations are welcome at or by sending a check to Latchis Arts, 50 Main Street, Brattleboro VT 05301.

Tickets to The Roosevelts: An Intimate History are $40, general admission, anywhere in the hall.  Take your pick of any of the 750 beautiful new seats.  Tickets are available now at and at the Latchis Hotel desk starting September 16.  You won’t want to be anyplace else on October 19.
