WEST HARTFORD, CT — A group dedicated to saving the 1947 Elm Theater is racing against time to gain public and private support for their efforts to buy the theater back from a developer hoping to turn the shuttered movie house into a drug store.

The Hartford Courant quotes Town Manager Barry Feldman as calling their efforts “a noble goal” but “awfully naive.” The group, Save The Elm, is hoping to turn the theater into a mixed use venue for concerts, plays, and other live events.
