FORT WORTH, TX — The Latin Arts Association, which leases the Rose Marine Theater from the city of Fort Worth, has announced its purchase of a three-story former market, which is adjacent to the old movie house, in order to expand its capabilities.

According to the Star-Telegram, the additional 12,000 square foot building will be converted into “a rehearsal hall, a dressing room, an art gallery, offices, a kitchen area and a loading dock” for the Rose Marine Theater. The expansion is scheduled to be completed in a year and a half.

The former 244-seat cinema has been the center piece of the revival of the Mexican-American community in the city’s north side ever since the Rose Marine reopened in 2000 after laying dormant for three decades.
