Enzian Makeover

Project will keep Maitland’s arthouse gem gleaming

Tiedtke hopes the updates provide an unobstructed view for patrons anywhere in the theater without sacrificing Enzian's homespun charm. The new Enzian will also feature re-carpeted floors, forest-green walls and proscenium curtains. The makeover is scheduled for completion in March, just before the 2013 Florida Film Festival.

Renovations have been underway for more than a month, but those fearing they could tamper with scheduling or programming needn't worry: Tiedtke says Enzian's foundation of film festivals, outdoor movie events and independent pictures will not change. After all, it's not the tables, chairs and carpeting that make the Enzian different, it's the philosophy behind the theater that makes it what it is.

"Our relationship with our patrons and our audiences is extraordinarily good, and it's something that we treasure," Tiedtke says. "We are a community-based, community-serving organization. … We could not do what we do without community support and the loyalty of our patrons and supporters. It's the difference between being here and not being here."
