First Friday Art Crawl: May Edition

May 3, 2013. Following days of rain over the past week, it looks like the weather may decide to cooperate just in time for tonight’s First Friday Art Crawl. The clouds and mist have let up just in time in downtown Boone. Temperatures for tonight are expected to stay between in the mid to high 40s and may stay up in the low-50s for the earlier part of the evening.

The Old App Twin, Looking Better Than It Has In Years

https://www.hcpress.com/?p=35629

Aug. 2, 2012. The old theater on King Street is looking better than it has in four years. Staff of Boone Public Works Department continue to dress the outside of the old Appalachian Twin Theater, constructing the black and white facade that has the letter “A” centered above the old entrance.

Town staff began working on the outside of the theater two weeks ago, eliminating or painting over the boards tagged with graffiti and cleaning up some of the “rough-looking” bricks. All of this enhancement is intended on spurring interest and generating excitement about the capital campaign, which is currently in its silent phase, to purchase and restore the old theater.
