Currently abandonded, efforts are underway to restore the Afton to a first-run movie theatre. Fred Schoenfeld of The Commodore Theatre is leading the effort. Duane Cotton of Trademark Construction, and the Hampton Roads “Extreme Makeover Home Edition” build is assisting. Kenneth Johnson of Freedom 1650, The Commodore Theatre, and Studio Center is handling this page.
They are looking for volunteers, donations, and materials to be able to proceed with the project and avoid it being torn down.
