Yes, we have a new name!

As of Jan. 1, and for at least the next 10 years, we will be called The Lindsay Theater and Cultural Center, “The Lindsay” for short.

This renaming will drive new branding, including signs, logo and website. But CEO Carolina Pais-Barreto Thor, reassures patrons that the cultural experiences they’ve enjoyed for nearly six years at 418 Walnut St., Sewickley, will only get better.

“Operations will continue as usual, with the trusted wide selection of films, cultural and community events offered 365 days a year,” Thor says. “The same Board of Directors and administrative staff are working in the background. The Theater’s focus on accessibility and inclusivity continues, and its mission remains its foundation: to strengthen cultural, educational and entertainment experiences northwest of Pittsburgh.”

The Corry Family Foundation, the new naming sponsor, is memorializing beloved daughter and sister, Lindsay Nicole Corry, who battled cancer for 18 months before passing away in August 2021 at the age of 30.

Since January, rebranding has been phased in. The facade of the Theater might look empty until April, as new signage is built in the the exuberant colors favored by Lindsay, who was a photographer and arts lover as well as a successful financier. The Lindsay Theater and Cultural Center’s evolving online presence embraces new social media hashtags, a new website (after this interim) and new email addresses for the Theater team. Emailed programming notes, The Weekly Update and The Short List, also sport a new look.

“We are immensely grateful to the Tull Family for their support at the earliest stages of this organization, which led to our former name as The Tull Family Theater,” Thor says. “We thank all of our donors, patrons and supporters, and encourage their enthusiasm for the coming year and beyond!”
