NORFOLK, VA — The old Granby Theatre, which has been closed for several years, is under renovations at this time.
I had noticed a sign on the marquee several months ago with an website. This site says something about a “Paramount” event… and some kind of club in this restored theatre. There was a phone number which only gives you an answering machine for a property management company. The site mentioned a big event in late 2003. Any idea when this is to occur?
It’s an incredible music house now, taking the bulk of small-medium sized shows that would have once gone to the (now gone) Boathouse.
I remember a summer day in 1984 watching Purple Rain 7 times in that grand old theatre.
