Sayre Theatre History

(Formerly the Sayre Opera House – 1914 Sayre, PA)

The Valley and surrounding communities have given enormous contributions of time, talent, and treasure to Bradford County Regional Arts Council (BCRAC) and Sayre Theatre since 1995. This ongoing support has enabled the theatre to take a step beyond its rich history into a second century of new adventures, providing a timeless venue for first-run films, independent film festivals, children’s theatre, live performances, fundraising for local charities, special community events, birthday parties, meetings, and more.

The BCRAC has created a modern, comfortable, and attractive arts center that continues to serve the needs of today’s movie and live performance patrons.  A renovated lobby and concession area, an art gallery, two small cinemas – the D’Rosa and the Williams 3, and a large theatre space, dedicated as the Guthrie Performing Arts Center, were the first of many ongoing upgrades to the facility.  A generous donation by a friend of the theatre provided two retro-style chandeliers that grace the interior of the Guthrie Performing Arts Center.

With the help of the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, Major Sponsors, the United Way of Bradford County and patron support, live events are presented in the Guthrie Performing Arts Center, ranging from the Nightlife Presents to the Schooltime Youth series and other stand-alone events. Sayre Theatre also hosts Missoula Children’s Theatre.

The second floor of the theatre not only houses three Christie CP 2210 digital projectors, it also features a large open space with a small kitchen area that is used for meetings, artist workshops, birthday parties, and special events.

In 2014, the marquee on the Sayre Theatre began to show serious signs of age and decay. Following an inspection and report by Hunt Engineers, the board decided that the marquee needed to be removed. An ambitious and extensive four-year project to raise funds and replace the marquee began. The new marquee designed by Bartush Signs of Orwigsburg, Pennsylvania replicates the appearance of the former marquee in 21st Century technology and is stunning.

The Sayre Theatre building and program committee continues to support the needs and ongoing programs at the beautiful historic theater, now in it’s 107th year.
