Arts center OK'd for old Bethlehem Steel site

BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) - September 29, 2009

The unanimous approval of the land development plans on Monday sets the stage for construction to begin this fall on the $25 million, four-story performing arts center in Bethlehem.

The arts center is slated to open in spring of 2011.

It is to include a two-screen cinema, a bistro and an area with flat-screen TVs that visitors can use for anything from Powerpoint presentations to Guitar Hero.

The building will also have a cabaret-style cafe with a 900-person capacity and a 4,000-square foot room for community and educational events.
