11/21/2013 Theater plans new upscale cafe; wine service in the works

The Jones Theater, located on Main Street in Westcliffe, will take advantage of the newly opened space in Studio 2 where the old radio station used to be.

"It’s going to be a place for people who come to town to see a movie," Roland Williams said. "If a show starts at 7:30, the shop will open at 6:30. We are thinking of having coffee and pastries available."

Williams stated that people will be asked what they would like to have at the eatery.

"We will have different kinds of foods and treats than what’s available in town," Williams said. "We don’t want to compete with other businesses."

The food and drinks will be bought on a donation basis. The theater is trying to raise $100,000 to get new floors. Beneath the floor will be an audio loop so that people with hearing aids won’t have to worry about extra feedback or other annoyances.

"The old ticket booth inside the theater is going to be used again," Williams said. "That way people will be able to walk around the theater and see the café in Studio 2."

The Jones Theater is also in the process of obtaining a liquor license so that wine and other beverages may be available at the eatery during live music events. It is still waiting on application approval from the town of Westcliffe.

For more information, contact the theater at 783-3004.
