Movie Theatre Legacy

In honor of the birthday of the first movie theater...
I loved going to this theater when I was little. I believe then, and no I am not that old, we could get in for 25 cents!

Ambridge Family Theatre
1967 - Present

Tom and Barbara Budjanek are the original owners of the Ambridge Family Theatre. They began the theatre creatively; wooden seats were purchased from the Pittsburgh Playhouse during one of its' renovations, neon lights were taken from the old "Blue Sky" sign, and Barbara's artistic talents furnished the front lobby in a plush 1930's style with hanging brass and crystal chandeliers, gold accented crown molding, red flocked velvet wallpaper, and mirrors to give a spacious appearance. Later on, cushioned seating from Radio City Music Hall was placed in the theatre. In 2004 the seating was refurbished with new padding and upholstery.

Stress Relief

So for those of you who don't know me, I come from a family of bakers. I have been whipping things up in the kitchen since I was a little girl. And to this day I continue to be fascinated by the science behing baking but most of all I love that fact that it provides me the utmost of stress relief. After a rough work week these were born...Peanut Butternaners, banana cupcakes with peanut butter frosting, even better with some chocolate shavings...:)
