The Historic Artcraft Theatre tries to offer people a nostalgic look at the cinema world.
Classic movies such as “Casablanca” and “A Christmas Story” are screened for the public on weekends. Neon lights and an art deco interior harken back to the golden age of film.
Before every movie, the national anthem is played for the audience.
But for one weekend, theatergoers will get to see what it was like the day the Artcraft opened in 1922. Fire-eaters, sword-swallowers and other vaudeville acts will help mark the 90th anniversary of the theater’s opening.
