Closing Statement, Tilton Square Theatre
After recently reopening, it is with great disappointment and frustration that we announce the forced closure of the Tilton Theater in Northfield. We received an onslaught of citations and threats of legal action against us, despite providing a higher standard to keep our customers and our employees safe compared to other businesses that are permitted to operate. Under the circumstances, we regret that we are left with no choice but to cease operations until the Governor allows us to reopen.
We believe we have been unfairly targeted and denied the right to engage in lawful business activity while other businesses are able to operate legally. This is a great loss to the community during these trying times and we encourage our customers and supporters to contact their local politicians to ask that our theater be permitted to open safely.
We remain a strong partner with the City and community of Northfield and we will continue to assert our right to provide safe family entertainment here.
