The Kent Stage will host a presidential debate viewing party Monday evening in downtown Kent.
The action will be larger than life as the TV image will be projected onto a 30 feet wide, 15 feet tall screen. Everyone is invited and admission is free. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the debate starts at 9 p.m.
"The layout of the theater includes 253 seats on the left, 245 seats on the right and 72 in the center for the undecided," Kent Stage manager Tom Simpson said. "Independents can sit in the balcony. If person changes their mind, they can move from one section to another.
"Actually, a Kent Stage regular came up with this idea after the last debate and we felt it was a great idea," Simpson said. "We will have red and blue drink specials for adults and a wide variety other beverages maybe even tea, as well as popcorn available for purchase at the bar."
In the past, The Kent Stage has served as host of viewing parties for Kent State Basketball, Super Bowl, and America's Got Talent when it featured Kent's own Charles Peacock.
The Kent Stage is located at 175 E. Main St. in downtown Kent. There is free parking behind the building and on all city streets.
