zoeTen years ago Zoetropolis closed its doors after a six year run.. As soon as it closed I immediately regretted it, and it has been on my Mind ever since. Then I met Karen Roberts and after talking we both agreed that this city could potentially share our love of Films again. Thanks to Marshall Snively at the JSID, after several months of looking we found the Old Raub supply warehouse, with two spaces tucked in the middle of the building. It seemed virtually useless to anyone else due to the sloped floors, and 18 to 20+ foot high ceilings. I knew that this was the moment, it had to be done.

A long year later, having done all the work along side my husband, Peter Lindsay (who actually did most all the work) we opened!! We have been open for a month, and although It’s been a slow process, we have a lot of very positive feedback. The space speaks for itself, I am very proud to have anyone share our love for the art house. We will be ever expanding over the next few years, and truly appreciate our Loyal Regulars who have not missed a film yet.

theoldZoe 300x248We are extremely grateful to everyone who helped us get this project running again. Big thanks to chestnut hill café for all their help in building the space, especially Joan Todd, Steph’s mom who literally finished our drywall and painted, and made sure the place was finished. She is incredibly sweet and selfless! We all love her, and she has never missed a film! Also, a huge thank you goes out to Mary Haverstick and Michelle Mercure for giving us all of the old seats from the Fulton, along with their full support and expertise across the board.
