The event:  

Backstage Café is a new exciting venue for Hershey Art Association to showcase our artists’ works.   Located within the Allen Theater, the café is a place where folks buy their snacks and drinks prior to seeing a movie but also the café has a great menu where folks can eat lunch or dinner. Bottomline, there will be a large number of folks who will be able to view art. For more information about the Allen theater, check out their website:
