NEW CUMBERLAND, Pa. (WHTM) — Great news for fans of the West Shore Theatre in New Cumberland: It is finally getting ready to re-open after four years!

It became too expensive to operate, but Managing Director Dustin Leblanc tells abc27, thanks to the non-profit Friends of the West Shore Theatre and the commonwealth, there is now enough money to buy the building, remodel it, and soon re-open.

“It’s historically been just a movie theater but were going to be so much more than its really going to be a multi-use performing arts space. So on our grand opening weekend, we’re going to hit the big five as I like to call it. We’re hitting movies, music, arts, entertainment, and comedy,” Leblanc said.
