- Feb 1, 2007 — Controversial Dreamland renovations prevent summer opening
The Dreamland Theatre on Nantucket Island is a real treasure. This theater sits in the heart of an historic village with very strict building codes. The grey shingles and white trim are typical of the weathered island architecture.
“The theater has some history, although I’m not sure if it is more than 100 yrs old or not.” It was once part of a large oceanfront hotel which was taken apart in sections. This section was loaded onto a barge and ferried around the harbor to become the gem that it is now.
The seats have only recently been changed from hard wood, to modern theater seating, with cushions. Much about the wooden structure remains the same and it is a pavilion-style gem.
Closed in 2005, the Dreamland Theatre was dismantled in 2009, with promises that it will be rebuilt into a new movie theatre.
