Tom Lundstrum grew up in Springdale, AR attending Springdale Public Schools and the University of Arkansas. Like most college graduates in 1986, Tom looked for work away from Springdale. After 1 year in Tulsa, Tom, and his wife Robin (Hall), made the decision to return home and build their life in Springdale. Their two children, Gracie (21) and David (17), are both Springdale natives.
Tom’s first exposure to the Apollo Theatre was in the early 1990 when his dad partnered with Jim Ritchey to produce a country music show at the Apollo Theatre on Emma Avenue in Springdale. The show lasted for a couple of years finally falling victim to the trend of traffic and people away from downtown. The time the family spent in the theatre was memorable and prompted in Tom a desire to “one day own this place”. Finally fulfilling that desire, Tom credits his partner, Brian Moore, with the idea to buy the theatre once the City of Springdale condemned the building.
The rest is history yet to be made…
