The We Love Ridgewood Theater campaign, a group of residents and community leaders who are hoping to turn the Ridgewood Theatre at 56-27 Myrtle Ave, now closed, into an arts venue, has launched their new website and is looking for endorsements.

The group is looking for a “homegrown celebrity from Ridgewood” to endorse the cause and garner support from more of the community.

So far, the campaign has reached out to a number of “prominent musicians from the Ridgewood area.”

In addition, We Love Ridgewood Theater is in search of arts and entertainment groups or companies that may have been displaced by Hurricane Sandy and are looking for a new venue to partner up with.

There is a prospective buyer for the historic theater who has yet to be identified. While the potential owner may or may not turn the Ridgewood Theatre into an entertainment venue, the community campaign is continuing to promote its cause, in hopes of partnering with the buyer.

For more information on the campaign, visit weloveridgewoodtheater.org.
