Prudential Gammons sponsors Odeum restoration

Posted 4/27/12

Prudential Gammons Realty recently provided funding to the Greenwich Odeum on Main Street by providing sponsorship for 20 of the theater’s seats. Employees at the real estate agency were encouraged to contribute and raise donations for the sponsorship, with Broker Allen B. Gammons Jr. matching the contributions. The funds will go towards the refurbishment and restoration of the venue’s seats.

The Greenwich Odeum’s history reaches back to 1926, when it was opened as a vaudeville house called The Greenwich Theater. Over the years, the venue was converted to a movie theater until it was closed in 1990. The theater reopened as the nonprofit Greenwich Odeum in 1994. However, the inability to fund renovations that would make it compliant with new fire code restrictions led to its second closing in 2007.

Thanks to a grant awarded by The Champlin Foundation, as well as sponsors like Prudential Gammons Realty, the Greenwich Odeum has undergone renovations and is preparing to reopen. Each of the sponsored seats will bear a plaque recognizing the sponsors.
