Del Oro Theatre hosts grand opening tonight

It’s not even Halloween yet, but tonight’s Del Oro Theatre visitors can expect some special treats in the form of live music, movie previews, prizes and snacks during the venue’s free grand opening tonight.

The grand opening celebrates building improvements during the past year and the first lighting in more than 15 years of the renovated Del Oro tower.

Butch Minor’s swing band will play in the main auditorium while the Djunkyard Gypsies Band will play outside on Mill Street from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Movie previews will play in the two upstairs theatres.

Popcorn, soda, candy and movie-related prizes such as buttons, T-shirts and mini posters will be distributed. All attendees will be entered into a drawing for dinners, movie tickets and other prizes donated by Grass Valley businesses.

The grand opening ceremony and tower lighting is at 7 p.m.

In keeping with the era of the Del Oro’s construction, visitors are encouraged to dress in 1940s attire.

The Del Oro Theatre is at the corner of Mill and Neal streets.

Call 272-1646 for more information.
