An old Richmond institution -- first a movie theater, then a pool hall and a disco club -- the Robinson Theater on Q Street in Church Hill was vacated in the 1980s. When two families purchased the building to repair it and invest in the community in 2007, they discovered its rich history as a neighborhood hub and venue. The Robinson Theater reopened as a community arts center in 2009. They host community events, forums, talent shows, movie screenings, wedding receptions and more, as well as classes in arts and fitness -- all free to neighborhood residents. It's become a keystone of this fast-rejuvenating area of Richmond. As their sixth annual fundraiser to support the Robinson Theater's efforts, a 3-on-3 basketball tournament, will be held on March 8th, and upcoming service goals include nutrition educational outreach in partnership with Tricycle Gardens and Councilwoman Newbille's Wellness Initiative, among others.
