Posted March 2014
After more than 10 memorable years providing a community meeting space for countless events and programs, the Media Education Foundation (MEF) regrets to announce the closing of the Frances Crowe Community Meeting Room.
We have entered an agreement to sell the first floor of this building to our long-time tenant, the Woodstar Café. We reached this decision after carefully considering the best use of our resources, weighing the needs of the Woodstar, and concluding that we no longer need the office space adjacent to the community room on the first floor.
This means, effective immediately, the community room will no longer be available for community use.
Over the past 10 years, we’ve considered it a privilege to be able to offer this space to the Northampton community.
We were especially thrilled to name the room after our friend, Frances Crowe, in honor of her own service to the community, and to see the Friday Night Film Series she founded with the Northampton Committee to Stop the War blossom into one of the Valley’s most popular community events.
As the community room closes, we’re pleased to know that Frances and her friends are committed to keeping Friday Night Films alive.
If you have questions about the future of the Friday Night Film Series, please contact The Northampton Committee to Stop the War directly at
If you have questions about other meetings that were held in the community room, please contact the organizations responsible for those meetings directly.

Thank you so much for making this space such a special community destination for so long.
