BEDFORD, N.Y. -- Dobbs Ferry's Stephen Tilly Architect was chosen to lead the renovation efforts at the Bedford Playhouse, according to the Westchester County Business Journal.
Renovations, which are expected to begin this summer, will include building a 280-seat main theater, as well as a secondary, 90-seat theater for a more intimate feel, WCBJ reported.
The building was previously owned and operated by Bow Tie Cinemas, who closed the location in January .
More than $2.5 million was raised in an effort to keep the historic building from becoming retail space, WCBJ said.
