Ramos Elementary School, adjacent to Jackson Elementary School, is a new 85,000-square-foot facility for 750 students. It is organized into three distinct masses, with each mass composed of multiple "learning communities" for each grade level. It is the third facility in the Allentown School District to achieve LEED Gold certification.
Two icons of the silent film era will share Civic Theatre of Allentown's silver screen when Civic presents another installment in its ongoing series of silent film classics at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 6
The double bill features Harold Lloyd in "Safety Last," preceded by the short, "One Week" with Buster Keaton.
"Safety Last" has been digitally re-mastered. Both films be shown with Civic's new HD digital projection system which was installed in June.
