Cabot Oil & Gas Raises the Curtin for Dietrich Theater in Tunkhannock

The natural gas industry supports communities and Cabot Oil & Gas proves it again by devoting funds to the revitalization of Tunkhannock’s Dietrich Theater.

The Dietrich Theater has been cherished for decades in the Tunkhannock community. After its inception in 1936, the theater hosted movie goers when they needed it most. From the height of World War II and steadily through the Vietnam War, the Dietrich Theater was there to take people’s minds off of the worrying events of each decade.

It was in 1998 when a group of local residents worked to bring the Dietrich Theater back to working order and reopen it for the Tunkhannock community.
