HAGERSTOWN -- The Maryland Theatre's floor seats were for bidding and the balcony was for cheering during Saturday's butterfly statue auction "Buy it, buy it, buy it," dozens of students in the balcony chanted from above during one bidding battle. Several times, the students -- soon to start at the new Barbara Ingram School for the Arts next door -- yelled their support for the money soon to change hands. Saturday's Take Flight auction and gala in downtown Hagerstown capped months of butterfly-related hoopla over the new school, which is scheduled to open in August.

Some longtime city residents might recall the days in downtown Hagerstown when movies were shown in Henry's Theater, and the Elks Club held dances in the big ballroom upstairs. The Elks moved out of the building at 9-11 S. Potomac St. in 1975 and the theater went dark five years later, but now, thanks to a $10 million makeover, the old building will soon take on a new life as the Barbara Ingram School for the Arts. It will become Washington County's eighth high school and only the second of its kind in Maryland.
