Villa Theatre sets to reopen this week in Malta


November 6, 2019

When the Adams family first purchased the Villa Theatre (Garry, daughter Stormy, and wife Rosetta are pictured below) in 1992, the first movie they showed was "The Addams Family." The Villa, now owned by Garry's son, Dave, reopens this week in Malta and the first movie to be shown, you guessed it, "The Addams Family."

Some things have changed and some remain the same at Malta's Villa Theatre, but anyone who has spent time in the theatre will quickly notice way more changes than things that have stayed the same at the Villa when it reopens for business on November 8.

"We have kept a few things, but not many," said new Villa Manager Christine Riggs. "There is still the 'Have a Nice Day" small strip of carpet where some of the concessions are stored, the vintage "no smoking" signs, and the old fire hose is still in the wall, but other than that, a lot has changed around here in the last three months."
