The Guthrie Theatre in Grove City is for sale. This photo was taken in April soon after it temporarily closed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The theater has since reopened.

The Guthrie Theatre in Grove City is for sale following financial hardships created by the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the meantime, current owner Veritas Arts plans to continue operations as long as possible.

At 7 p.m. tonight, Aug. 28, the Guthrie will show "Shooting Heroin," a film produced, written and directed by Spencer T. Folmar, president and founder of Veritas Arts.

The movie follows a group of people in a small town who decide to take matters into their own hands in response to the opioid epidemic.

From Aug. 31 through Sept. 2, the Guthrie will show "Tenet," a Christopher Nolan film that was supposed to be released in the spring.

At 7 p.m. Sept. 4, the theater will host dinner and a movie with another showing of "Tenet" plus a meal served by Esculent Catering.
