The Lucas Theatre reopened in December 2000 with a screening of "Gone with the Wind," and in the following months hosted Broadway shows and famous musicians. Although show attendance was high, the operation of the building proved too expensive to sustain on its own. The Savannah College of Art and Design recognized the theater as an important cultural asset in the community, and formed a relationship with The Lucas Theatre for the Arts. The theater's future is now assured by the college's support, which allows for a wide range of community uses in addition to top-notch entertainment such as operas from London and Italy, European orchestras, country stars, traveling repertory companies and film series.
