Lucas Theatre for the Arts

The fate of The Lucas is uncertain since the SCAD-majority board controversially fired its staff in April, but one thing is for sure: the crew that transformed the functionality of Abercorn’s gorgeous Art Deco theatre sure knew how to please a crowd. Movie night at The Lucas made for a fabulous first date or family outing and certainly offered a more elegant, decidedly Savannah alternative to the multiplexes.

Whether they booked films by theme (September offered an ode to Gene Wilder; the holidays welcomed classics like It’s A Wonderful Life), there was always something kind of magical about seeing a beloved film framed by the opulent theatre. Let’s hope SCAD remembers that magic as they take over The Lucas’s programming.
