“ENCORE: PROCTORS AT 90”
By Richard Lovrich and Michael Eck

This month, Proctors marks its 90th anniversary, and in conjunction with the celebration, the Schenectady arts and entertainment complex has published a new, deluxe hardcover photo book, that examines Proctors’ history, but also focuses on Proctors today, and its role in the renewal of downtown Schenectady. The book features more than 100 photographs and is divided into 14 chapters penned by Proctors’ publicist Michael Eck. “This is our story,” says Proctors CEO Philip Morris. “This is a snapshot of who we are right now.”
