Milton TheaterA notable piece of East Milton Square real estate that has sat vacant for years in is getting new life as a northern Italian-inspired neighborhood spot.
Novara is now open in the former State Theater/Milton Cinema. The theater showed its final film in 1987. For some time, the 5,500-square foot space was used as storage for Java Jo’s Coffeehouse, before a fire destroyed it in 2007. In 2014, it was purchased by local real estate firm Falconi Companies, along with adjacent lots which are used for restaurant parking.
