Amazing news as sleepy Moraga of all places is getting a new brewery / restaurant called Canyon Club Brewery. Located in a former bank sharing an ample parking lot with Orchard Supply Hardware near the intersection of Moraga Way and Moraga Rd, it’s expected to open later this summer. The triangular modern architecture with plenty of outdoor space will be a fabulous showcase for what could prove to become a destination spot bringing in not only locals but others from around Lamorinda and beyond. In addition to a restaurant and on-site brewery, stay tuned for more exciting details to come!
Starbucks is going to reopen very soon, possibly later this week, a short hop from their existing spot in Rheem Valley shopping center in Moraga. Although it’s not a Reserve this one will have a drive thru! The updated interior looks way more spacious as well.
A few years ago the iconic Rheem Theatre in Moraga was set to close before it got a reprieve and ended up remaining open, until now. Their final day open was yesterday but according to this East Bay Times article, Mayor Dave Trotter said that, “Moraga has a shared goal of getting the theater reopened in the near future.” I love the art deco design of this theater and hope to see it reopen, but realistically, is there any chance this will come back or is this the final good bye?
Email from Rheem Theatre:
It is with great sorrow that this Sunday, January 7, 2018, will be our final movies showing at the Rheem Theatre. It is not economically feasible to continue to operate the theater. We have an agreement with the property owner to keep everything intact in hopes that a reasonable solution can be found soon.
We have put our hearts and souls into maintaining and making the Rheem what it is today.
Thank you all for your support and patronage over the last 8 years.
