The Latchis Theater, Brattleboro’s Hub for Great Entertainment

Posted on

Rows of seats at Latchis Theater with lights on stage.The elegant Latchis Theater has been the hub of Brattleboro art, culture and creativity since 1938 and it continues this role today. The Latchis family built the theater with the vision of it becoming a “Town Within A Town—Under One Roof.” Not only did it bring the latest in art and culture to the Southern Vermont region, the building itself was a creation of artistic beauty. Brattleboro prides itself on the vibrant creative community and dedication to supporting the arts in all forms. When the old Latchis Theater became available in 2003, a group of committed volunteers seized this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to save the historic building. The group, the Brattleboro Arts Initiative (BAI), worked tirelessly on the renovation. Today the Latchis Theater has been restored to its grand movie palace status. 

Brattleboro’s quaint, lively downtown is full of great cafes, pubs, restaurants and shops. The artistic and creative core of this wonderful town can be seen everywhere. Brattleboro galleries, art museum, and many live entertainment venues make it a wonderful place to vacation. At the center of it all is the Latchis Theater, an elegant space, for movie matinees and live performances. After a day exploring the beautiful Vermont countryside, cozy up in the red velvet seats at the Latchis Theater for a night of entertainment.
