VINELAND — Ushers opened the doors to the restored Landis Theater on Thursday evening, and the first crowd in more than two decades entered the building to watch a local high school production of “42nd Street.”
Sacred Heart High School’s play went on as scheduled even though, just hours earlier, officials were unsure if the building would pass inspection. But an eight-hour fire inspection was completed early Thursday afternoon, and the theater was given a temporary certificate of occupancy.
