CLEARWATER, Fla., June 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As it approaches its 4th year anniversary, The Scientology Information Center in the Historic Clearwater Building announces that they have surpassed the 44,000 visitor mark.
To facilitate the curious, the Church of Scientology opened an Information Center in July 2015 with a permanent exhibit of 4 panels with interactive displays with some 400 audio/visual videos covering a biographical introduction speaking about L. Ron Hubbard's legacy as a humanitarian and author, Church sponsored social betterment programs helping to eradicate societal ills through education and empowerment, the beliefs and practices of the Scientology religion, and the Churches of Scientology opened across the world.
The Center is housed in the 101 year-old Historic Clearwater building featuring 30 foot vaulted ceilings, Italian marble floors, dentil molding, and large windows. Perfectly situated at the crossroads of Fort Harrison Avenue and Cleveland Street in its downtown district, the Center attracts visitors from across the United States and around the world – as far away as Saudi Arabia and as close as one to two blocks away.
In addition to providing information about the religion, the Center houses cultural events such as music concerts for special calendar days, theatrical presentations, talks for World Religions classes and Open Houses for all, helping to bring the community together.
One recent visitor said of her visit, “I’m new in town and had questions about Scientology. My friend who had visited before suggested I come and learn about it for myself. I had heard a lot of things about Scientology, and what I learned for myself is that it’s nothing like what I had heard. It’s actually a lot of common sense on how to improve your life.”
Another guest said, “This is a great place to visit. I definitely found some things that were very interesting during my visit here. I felt it was worth the trip. I enjoyed learning what the real story is.”
“People are often curious about the Scientology religion and its beliefs,” said Amber Skjelset – Manager of the Scientology Information Center. “As L. Ron Hubbard once explained, ‘Scientology is an applied religious philosophy designed and developed to make the able more able.’ The Scientology Info Center is set up so people can learn about Scientology for themselves in a relaxed, friendly environment. There’s something for everyone here.”
The Scientology Information Center is open daily from 10am-10pm. For more information please contact Amber Skjelset at (727) 467-6966 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
