THE THEATER DISTRICT
South of the Marina Village and Officers' Row, the 1933 theater and 1906 gym-PX building face Sussex Avenue. Both will be restored and modernized. The 390-seat theater will be configured for movies, live theater and music. When the fort was an active base, the PX and gym housed a bowling alley, indoor recreation gym and a store. Once converted to a multi-use building it will consist of a restaurant, pub and banquet hall.
Behind the two buildings, toward the river, open space is set aside for concerts in the park, outdoor festivals and special events. Plans are underway for a new performance stage designed to support outdoor music and theater.
