The Bellevue Theater: Fade to Black or Double Feature?

From the days of silent movies to digital projectors, the Bellevue has played a prominent cultural role in Montclair and is an architectural anchor of the Upper Montclair business district. This slide show chronicles this theater's development, explores how Montclair came to have three major movie houses operating at once, and what the future might hold for the Bellevue as it nears its centennial. Sponsored by the Montclair History Center and presented by Lisanne Renner, historian for Friends of Anderson Park. Suggested donation: $5.  At the Montclair History Center’s Crane House and Historic YWCA, lower level Founders’ Room, 110 Orange Road, Montclair; montclairhistory.org or FriendsOfAndersonPark.com.
