It’s a work in progress for owner Kevin Rhude, who would like to turn the 100-year-old State Theatre of Boyertown into a theater of the arts.
At 61 N. Reading Ave., the theater shows three to four movies a week at 4:30 and 7 p.m. Mondays through Fridays in addition to a 2 p.m. matinee on Saturdays and Sundays.
But Rhude of Boyertown wants the theater to go beyond film and be a venue for arts of all kinds.
Rhude purchased the State Theatre in 2008. Having worked in real estate for more than 20 years, Rhude said he has an appreciation for old buildings and art.
