The Allen Theatre will be closed beginning Friday, July 31, for a time to be determined.  More about the (very positive) reason why in the near future.  Details on our Grand Re-Opening coming soon.

VERY IMPORTANT thing to remember: 
MJ's Coffeehouse remains open for business (hours of operation below), so come on out for a sandwich, coffee, dessert, and/or ice cream. You'll be glad you did.
