BROOKLYN, Iowa — Following an extensive, 13-month renovation from May 2019 to June 2020, the Brooklyn Opera House will have its grand opening event on Oct. 22.
The opera house now stands as a performance hall, event center and movie theater. The event will celebrate the new changes and its historic presence in the Brooklyn community.
“Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we halted our grand opening until this fall,” said Laura Manatt, General Manager. “With the renovation, our team worked hard to preserve the historic elements of the building and create a space where our community can come together.”
The fundraiser dinner and silent auction begins at 6:30 p.m. Dinner will be catered by Peppercorn Food Company and will include tossed salad, chicken and pork tenderloin, garlic mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli and raspberry cheesecake. Vegetarian options are available upon request.
The event will continue with a live auction at 8 p.m. The silent auction will conclude at this time.
