Montclair’s Wellmont Theater is open and running

Wellmont Theater

An hour before show time, a battalion of security officers was directing a convoy of concertgoers in S.U.V.’s, and traffic was flowing smoothly in an area known to wear down would-be diners and moviegoers seeking a coveted parking space.

Back in September, Joseph Hartnett, chief executive of the municipality, said, “Keeping all of these people moving is going to be a challenge in an already parking-challenged town.” As it turned out, concertgoers said parking was less an issue than other factors, at least on a Tuesday evening when the theater was not filled to capacity.

“There’s ample parking on the street — I had no problem at all,” said Chris Kunstadter, 53, of Bloomfield. Mr. Kunstadter received e-mail notification of the postponement in time to avoid heading out on Monday, but when he made it inside on Tuesday, he had a different concern.

“They should have seating on the lower level,” he said, referring to the capacious open space near the main stage, where clumps of concertgoers convened. For this concert, seats were available only on the Wellmont’s upper tier. [NY Times]

The Decemberists, Wolf Parade, Brian Wilson, Al Green, Yo La Tengo, Vampire Weekend, Duran Duran, and Rufus Wainwright all have shows coming up at Wellmont Theatre.
