The Tull Family Theater Greets Its First Patrons

The very first patrons walked into the Tull Family Theater this morning for the inaugural matinee–La La Land.

Rosanne and Stephen Robinson of Hopewell Township were the first customers.

They came, Stephen said, “Because I’m retired one month and lucky to get a date with my wife!”

“Hey, we’re home,” said Rosanne, explaining that she was excited to be at the theater’s first showing at 11:30 a.m. today.
