Providence Preservation Society to host Winter Bash at Bomes Theater

THE PROVIDENCE PRESERVATION SOCIETY will hold its 16th annual winter fundraiser at the Bomes Theater in Providence on Feb. 23.

PROVIDENCE – On Feb. 23, the Providence Preservation Society will hold its 16th annual winter fundraiser, this year with a Hollywood theme.

The event will be held at the recently renovated Bomes Theater on Broad Street in Providence.

Constructed in 1921 in the Beaux Arts style, the facility suffered for years from vacancy and neglect and was listed on the society’s Most Endangered Properties ledger five times. Fernando Tavares, a local developer, began renovation of the theater in 2018.

Tickets are available online and range from $45 to $110.
