Newly Renovated Historic Loring Park Music Box Theater Is Now Open

The Music Box Theater, a historic Minneapolis landmark, underwent renovation during January and February 2016 and is now open on Nicollet Ave in Loring Park. Coming soon, on the weekend of May 6, they will offer a weekend of classic, indie, and family movie showings. The theater is under new management, who are planning several different events in 2016 aimed to provide the Loring Park community with high quality arts and entertainment.

Located at 1407 Nicollet Avenue, just one block west of the Minneapolis Convention Center, the Music Box Theater will host the "Flix and Chips" movie weekend by opening its doors on Friday evening for two showings, and Saturday afternoon for two matinee showings. The Music Box Theater has partnered with a popular local restaurant in Loring Park, Eggy's Diner, in order to provide free chips and movie admission.

"We are really excited to offer this event to our community in order to let them know that the Music Box Theater is a venue that is committed to providing fun and exciting arts and entertainment options in the downtown area," said Shuree Rivera, Creative Director for Wooddale at the Music Box Theater. "We decided to kick-off the spring season by showing some great movies that everyone could enjoy, and are in the midst of planning concerts, theatrical performances and the live-broadcast leadership event, 'The Global Leadership Summit' throughout the summer and fall here at the theater. Everyone is also welcome and invited to join our Sunday morning gatherings at 10am for live music, art, teaching, and community."

The Music Box Theater's renovations maintained and enhanced the historic glamour of the building, while upgrading its technology by installing a new lighting system, a digital stereo sound system, an HD digital projector, and free Wi-Fi. The two month renovation project was completed by Wooddale Church, the Music Box Theater's new management.
