Renovators sought for Town Theater

HILLSBORO, OR — With so many towns leading the charge around the country, Hillsboro is looking to follow suit and revive its classic movie house, The Town Theater.

The Town Theater, the vintage movie theater on Hillsboro’s historic Main Street, has been largely vacant since the City of Hillsboro acquired it several years ago.

Now, with downtown in the midst of a renaissance, the city wants the classic old theater to be a centerpiece for its downtown revitalization efforts by becoming, once again, an active entertainment venue.

By issuing a request for expressions of interest, the city seeks teams to rehabilitate and operate the Town. The city has no specific program in mind for the building, and replacing the building with a new structure is an option if rehabilitation proves unfeasible.
