Towns Need to Step Up
To the Editor:
I read with great hope the article on the attempts to save the Surflight Theatre complex (“Surflight Theatre Future Has Hope If Quick Action,” 9/28) and hope that Long Beach Township will join Beach Haven to save this important LBI cultural landmark.
Now that there are no movie theaters on the Island, Surflight is needed more than ever. It has been able, in the past, to present excellent, high-quality productions, such as “Les Miserables,” “A Chorus Line” and “Miss Saigon.” These productions attracted many people from off the Island to the theater and most likely to restaurants and post-theater establishments, as well.
It is really important that Surflight be saved and reopened, and I can only hope that both Island towns will step up and help.
