Attics, Basements & Secret Places Episode 4

by Lauren Gooch - July 20, 2016

On Tuesday, July 19th, members of the Wellsboro Home Page staff were unexpectedly called into the office of Executive Producer, John Vogt, for a very important mission. Seeking risk and adventure in a quest for the unknown, the challenge was ultimately accepted. Detailed instructions led to the precise mission location, but an unseen trapdoor led to a dark and mysterious place. Confused, but curious, the team investigated their surroundings, desperately searching for the truth (and an exit!) in this eerie and unfamiliar area.

The mission was a success as the crew came across Arcadia Theatre manager, Peter Davis, who revealed some fascinating information on the history of this building. After opening in 1921, it was later acquired by Larry Woodin, the man also credited for the founding of the Pennsylvania State Laurel Festival. This theater shows a variety of movie genres for people of all ages. A few years ago, the Arcadia switched from traditional film to digital projection, making it easier to provide the movies we enjoy today with crisper visuals and sound.

“There are always movies,” Davis said, “whether you’re into drama, comedy, horror, cartoons – we pull from all sections! It’s a place where everyone can come, have a good time, relax, and forget about what’s going on outside for a couple hours.”

This four-screen, performing arts venue also specializes in the showing of live stage productions. This gives primarily high schoolers and college students the opportunity to act in a more challenging setting than they may be used to.
