MEDNA – The Medina Theatre will be open today as a warming center for people who want to stop in on a brutally cold day.

Amy Herman, the manager and event coordinator at the Theatre, noted the public library and other public buildings are closed due to the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

With those sites closed, she said people have fewer places to go if they need a respite from the harsh weather.

“It’s too cold,” she said. “It is freezing out there. I know there are people out there who are homeless, who don’t have power.”

She welcomed people to stop by the Theatre at 601 Main St. She will have food and beverages available for free for people who need a break from the cold.

“We’ll be here for as long as people need it,” she said.

The temperature is currently 1 below zero and is forecast to reach a high of 8 degrees today.
