Shawn and Jackie Feener opened the Classic Theatre in 2011 with an objective in mind to reimagine entertainment by offering something differ-ent in theatre. After ten years in the entertainment business our plans for the future are to bring another screen to the theatre which will considera-bly open up our options with respect to movie screenings. With two auditoriums, we could use one or the other periodically for live shows. This would be a great addition for the business and our patrons.
We have upgraded the projection, to the latest Doremi digital system with a new screen and sound system with seating capacity for 220.
Our concession stand sells a wide variety of items and arguably the best popcorn in Central NL, as well bar services! We offer private rentals for corporate or family functions, birthday parties etc.
Also offered, Captiview In Seat Closed Captioning units for people with hearing loss. And hopefully once the pandemic has ended, we can get back to offering our sensory friendly showings which are tailored to those who have sensory issues. We’ve also installed a wheelchair ramp to make the theater more accessible and inclusive for all our patrons.
In addition to a great place to enjoy a movie we have had quite a bit of success with musical shows and comedy acts. The Classic welcomed every-one from Tyler Shaw to Justin Martin, and Tina Randell to Michael Lynch, and Meatloaf Tribute band to the Ladies of Country. We have also pro-duced many fundraisers at the Classic to assist people and our community with their needs.
Our success is due to making the theater a “community” based center that has something for everyone that bring friends and families together to enjoy a good time.
The “classic” feel in the future. We know the nostalgic appeal the theater has for many generations of people who grew up in Central so we will do our best to update without taking away that amazing character.
