The Lucas is throwing this party as a big Thank You to Savannah! Arthur Lucas built The Lucas Theatre of the Arts in 1921. The Lucas saw a decline in ticket sales as television gained popularity & the suburbs drew people away from the downtown area, ultimately closing its doors in 1976. Ten years later, a motivated group of Savannah citizens worked to save the Lucas from being demolished. They pooled their resources, purchased the building & began a restoration that would eventually span nearly 14 years to create the non-profit organization the Lucas is today. In December 2000, the Lucas reopened, screening Gone with the Wind to announce its return.
