Editor’s Note: An upcoming issue of the East Sacramento News will feature, in more depth, the new Tahoe Park pub theater, Public House Theater. A previous story can be read by searching for “pub theater” on our website, www.valcomnews.com

A transformation of the Tahoe Food Market on 14th Avenue is complete. Just last March, the inside was a bit of a disaster area with wet plaster drying over large holes in the walls. There were bars on the windows. Just last week, Jackie Nadile the visionary and business owner of the latest incarnation of the space, called the East Sacramento News with exciting news. “We’re just about to open. It’s looking like next week.”
Sure enough, the place looks good to go. Upon arrival to 5440 14th Ave., Jackie opens the doors to what she and her husband Alan Lee have named, Public House Theater. Rows of old Del Paso Theatre chairs, obtained from Alan’s boss, line the inside as red curtains border a large movie screen. Also in the seating area is a comfortable couch and the kind of recliners you just sink into.
Behind the seating area, in a separate room, is the bar, which features beer from West Sacramento micro-brew, Bike Dog (whose owner, like Jackie, is a Tahoe Park resident.) Jackie said she hosted a private party for friends there last weekend who really enjoyed the beer from Bike Dog.
Whereas most movie theaters charge a lot for popcorn and soda pop to recoup the costs of proceeds lost from ticket sales to the movie companies, Nadile said she’s hoping to keep the prices down. With regular menu items such as sandwiches, paninis and pizza, Public House Theater will also offer specials from time-to-time from local restaurants, including sushi night with sake and fare from Kansai Ramen & Sushi House (2992 65th St.,Ste. 288).
Jackie said if she can find Easy Rider on Blue-Ray she will show that opening night, Friday, Sept. 26 and from opening day on, she plans on keeping the theater open for Monday Night Football games, as well as movie nights Friday and Saturday and Sunday matinee. Food and drink will be served in a laid back atmosphere. All showings will be free for the first three weeks. To start, only snacks, beer, and wine will be served. Sandwiches and pizzas will be soon.
