Governor Cuomo recently announced 22 properties in New York recommended for the state and national historic registries. One of the properties receiving designation is the now-defunct Fleischmanns Theater in Fleischmanns, Delaware County. But it won’t remain defunct for much longer. Our friends at the Watershed Post reported that the theater, which was built in 1929 and once the hub of entertainment in the Catskill Mountain village, has been purchased by Erik Johanson and Fernando Delgado, a Brooklyn couple who intend to transform the theater into the Maxbilt, a dinner theater featuring local fare and independent film. Frankly, we’re always excited when flesh blood comes into a town to breathe new life into a decrepit landmark, and apparently, we aren’t the only ones. If the comments section on the Watershed Post article and the accolades the Maxbilt has received on their FB page are any indication, Fleischmanns is looking forward to the change, too. As for us, we can’t wait to see the finished product.
