Unveiling of a plaque

Members of the University and local communities gathered May 17 for the unveiling of a plaque at the Merwick Rehabilitation Unit of the Medical Center at Princeton. From 1905 to 1913 the facility, located at 79 Bayard Lane, was the site of Princeton's "Graduate House," the first residential graduate college in the United States. Pictured at the event, part of the yearlong celebration of the Graduate School's Centennial, are (from left): Dennis Doody, president of the Medical Center at Princeton; Mildred Trotman, Princeton Borough Council president; John Matthews '51, whose family owned the home between the time it was the Graduate House and when they donated it to the medical center; Phyllis Marchand, Princeton Township mayor; and John Wilson, dean of the Graduate School.


Garden Theatre reopens in style

Princeton NJ -- The Princeton Garden Theatre reopened to the public June 1 after being closed for extensive renovations since last August.

At a cost of well over a million dollars, the 80-year-old facility underwent a major structural refurbishment that included repairs to the roof, a new heating and air conditioning system, a fire suppression system, total sound-proofing, and upgraded electrical and plumbing systems. In addition, the movie-going experience has been dramatically improved through the installation of new plush, rocker seats with cup holders, some stadium-style seating, new state-of-the art projection and sound equipment, new bathrooms and new concession facilities.

The property is owned by the University and leased to the Theater Management Corp., which operates the movie theater.
