The Dunbar Theater Committee held a “Winter Party” to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Historic Theater and to commemorate a historic 1947
In 1947, The Dunbar Theatre was the site of one of the most prominent Christmas parties of the century. The party’s featured guests were members of the Ancient Egyptian Order Nobles Mystic Shrine (A.E.O.N.M.S.) and it was one of those parties people talked about for decades. I
In fact, current Dunbar supporters are still talking about the event as part of their fund-raising efforts.
As part of the event’s commemoration, members of the Shriners were invited back as special guest at the Winter Party. The evening also included special guest performance by Re-Defining Blackness and Roy Moye III. Music was provided by Pioneer DjDon In The Mix.
The Winter Party was held on Dec 23 at McAdams Park.
