New Venue Alert! Foster Home Wants Your Input

Posted by Ned Lannamann on Wed, Nov 30, 2011 at 1:29 PM

Interior of the Bob White Theatre

Well, Foster Home is not precisely a new venue—it's the former Bob White Theatre, at 6423 SE Foster. The theater's been around since at least the '20s, and the building's been purchased by Nick Storie. Inside is a 525-seat theater, and they're hoping to hold music, dance, film, and theater events inside. Also included is an adjacent duplex and warehouse—which could possibly be turned into a black box theater as well.

At any rate, no definite plans are determined as of yet, but what's really exciting is that Storie's team wants to make it very much a community- and neighborhood-oriented space. That's why they're holding an open house/brainstorming session on Saturday, December 10, to allow folks to check out the place and contribute ideas for its use.

Facebook event here; Sat Dec 10, 6423 SE Foster, noon-2 pm
