In anticipation of the construction of a long-planned center for drama and film, the film and drama departments moved from Avery Hall to the former Poughkeepsie Day School building on New Hackensack Road. “It will be a wonderful facility for the departments of drama and film, bringing them together in one building with state-of-the-art facilities for the first time,” said President Fergusson. During the transition period, the drama department planned to use the Powerhouse Theatre for most performances.

Security offices were also permanently moved from Avery to New Hackensack.    The Miscellany News
