Best Theater Revamp (2011)
The Picture House, with its historic architecture, was always a gem—but it definitely needed polishing. It got it—and wow! In the lobby, a new entryway—with a beautiful Palladian window—greets guests, and the concession area is larger and has better treats (from nearby Provisions). Inside the theater, cramped seats were replaced with cushier ones with cup holders. Now, the swank factor of the theater matches the quality of the film programming that goes on.
Best Renovation (2012)
Since it’s started showing movies again, we’ve always enjoyed a trip to The Picture House in Pelham—but we love it even more now that the theater unveiled a renovation last summer. The seats are cushier. The sound improved. Historic windows were uncovered. It added cup-holders. It even upgraded the snacks in the concession stand. And, thankfully, the movies are still top-notch.
