Threatened: Fayettevile, WV – Fayette Theatre

Save the Historic Fayette Theatre

By Mike Behler

For The Fayette Tribune

FAYETTEVILLE — After nearly 20 years and hundreds of popular performances, the special lease on the Historic Fayette Theatre has expired and theatre officials need the help of HFT supporters.

The HFT group has the opportunity to purchase the building, which opened in December 1937 as Fayetteville’s first modern motion picture theater.

“We have a golden opportunity to purchase the theatre. We have made a 10 percent down payment and we have until next February to raise the remaining $90,000,” a theatre official said. “Once the property is ours, we plan to have it declared a permanent historic landmark to ensure it will never be anything other that what it is today — a quaint community theatre where people can come to be entertained and to express themselves artistically.”
