Lift Ribbon Cutting

We have a LIFT!

Come visit our fully accessible building including  lift. From the lift there are two entrances into the building. The bottom is onto the first floor entering the Green Room. This also gives accessible entry to the library.  The second enters the theatre hall. Changes have been made to the library, to make room for the dedicated accessible washroom. New flooring has been put down in the Green Room, Library and washroom area. As well, a storage area and closet has been set up just outside the washrooms.

The majority of funding for this project has been provided by an Ontario 150 Grant, plus a donation from the Township of Zorra.

A fundraising campaign had been initiated by Thistle Theatre with the hopes of raising $22,000 toward the balance of this project. We  exceeded our goal in just 9 months and additional funds have been put toward other hall renovations, to make your theatre experience even more enjoyable.

Thank you to our donors and Zorra Township for their support of our accessibility renovation.

 Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate on ribbon cutting day. You helped make this come true!
