Historic Madison Theatre re-opens

ALBANY - It's the return of an Albany landmark.
The historic Madison Theater re-opened Friday under new management with a tribute to Paul Newman.

The ribbon cutting was attended by newly elected mayor Kathy Sheehan, Assemblymember Patricia Fahy and Madison Neighborhood Association President Virginia Hammer.

"The city is thrilled to have the Madison Theater back in action for the upper Madison neighborhood," said Mayor Sheehan. "I applaud the concept of a community, second run theater and the overall effort that has been put into revitalizing an important piece of history in the heart of the city."

The theater will run classic and second run films.
"From Lawrence of Arabia to Caddyshack, we plan on showing them all." said Dan Laiosa, general manager of the Madison.

Friday's run of films included Slapshot, Butch Cassidy, Cool Hand Luke, and The Sting at 9:30 p.m.
