November 15, 2016 - Klein Receives State Bond

We are elated to announce that after much hard work The Klein has been granted a $2.6 Million State Bond for building updates. Updates include an elevator to transport patrons from the lobby to the mezzanine and balcony, upgraded audio and lighting systems, digital projection system, new carpets and safety handrails and an outdoor digital billboard. Earlier this year, The Klein received a $25,000 grant from the Bridgeport Rotary Club, which will also be applied to the purchase of the projection system. All work is expected to be completed by March 2018. For more information please read the below article.
