Celebrating 19 Years as Barrington’s Signature Magazine

May/ June 2024 Issue

About This Issue

ON THE COVER: The Stage Is Set! One of America’s oldest and most iconic entertainment venues will have a glorious second act. Opening in 1927 to traveling vaudeville performer’s colorful dance and song, then welcoming the talkies, through Hollywood’s Golden Age of film, and embracing the era of digital film distribution, the Catlow Theatre will live on. Literally hours away from an uncertain future and possible demise, Julianne and Brian Long purchased the property and have secured its future with the Catlow 1927 Foundation. Photography by Linda M. Barrett.
