Revival House Theatre
The Revival House is a platform to celebrate the experience of going to the movies. Our mission is to foster a community through the shared experience of film and presenting programs that are unique, entertaining, and fun. Within the walls of the historic Milton Theatre, we hope to provide monthly screenings equally dedicated to cinema and community.
From Elena Louvis:
Thomas Merton once said, "Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time." He's exactly right. We are exposed to art every day, and whether it's eccentric "street art" on the walls of a boring building, or the music you hear on the radio, art finds us. We love art, and we criticize it; we ignore it, and we depend on it. As for me, I depend on the art of music completely.
Being a 17 year old from Delaware, I'm privileged to call music my life. I listen to, play, sing, and write music. When people listen to me perform, they always tell me how awesome it must be to be the "star of the show". But in my life, music has stolen the spotlight.
Like many other 6 year-old kids, I wanted to be a famous singer. When I began learning piano and guitar at the age of 8, I was not very fond of discipline. But gradually, dedication to learning music became natural. I started off playing songs at open mic nights, and now am booking three hour gigs on a week night.
If you had asked me a year ago what music meant to me, I would've probably said something like "I love it" and left it at that. But I've experienced a change during my transition to junior year of high school; it's a shift that I can't necessarily identify with words, but one that you can definitely hear. Music is now the foundation, the motivation, and the goal behind everything I do. Most of my free time is dedicated to practicing, learning, and sharing my music with other people. I currently play covers and aim to continue building my songwriting capabilities.
By pursuing my career in music, I have confidence that I will learn more about myself and the world along the way. I hope to see you there.

Mia was just about to end her life. She was starving, freezing, and wandering out in the middle of nowhere. Moments before pulling the trigger, she's distracted by the sound of a nearby gunshot. Riley, a weary hermit, stumbles upon her while hunting and offers her food and shelter. Although skeptical of her story, Riley finds himself drawing parallels to his own life and how he managed to resort to isolation. What comes of this seemingly impossible meeting is a chance for them to find redemption for their grief and guilt within a cursed and quiet forest.
