The first big announcement of the year in regard to the theatre came March 6. After 142 years of retaining ownership of the Town Hall Theatre and its previous incarnations, the Town Hall Association gave up ownership to Plumas Arts. With the building owned in full by her organization, Plumas Arts director Roxanne Valladao told Feather Publishing last week it may be time to step up the theatre's visual and audio components to stay on par with technological advances. The Town Hall A~ociatioJi was formed in 1872 by three members of Quincy's community who wanted a place for the town to gather. Until last month when the association disbanded, it was the oldest nonprofit membership-based organization in Plumas County. Originally, Quincy's town hall was built for political debates and live performances. In 1911, a man named Paul Sprague rented out the Town Hail to show "moving pictures." Since then, Quincy has had a love affair with cinema. In 1934 a fire ravaged much of downtown Quincy, and burned down the Town Hall. Two years later it was rebuilt with an art deco motif and functioned with an emphasis on motion pictures as the Town Hall Theatre. Plumas Arts took control of the day-to-day operations and business of the theatre back in 2003, but never owned the building until recently. The Town Hall Association relinquished ownership when it was decided that its intentions paralleled those of Plumas Arts: "Over the last decade in particular, we proved to the Town Hall Association that we were fulfilling the mission they intended," said Valladao. "It became clear to me in 2003 that cultivating the relationship with the Town Hall Association and This photo from 1936, the first year the current Town Hall Theatre opened, shows the long lines the venue attracted. Plumas Arts was recently given ownership of the Town Hall Theatre, and plans to make some improvements to its format in the next year. Photo courtesy Plumas County Museum Thi f lythi follow suit.
