HOLLIDAYSBURG, PA — The Blair Theater is in danger of being sold and demolished for office space.

The old Blair Cinema on Allegheny Street may have a new owner soon.

Samuel Britz, a certified public accountant of Britz & Associates, said he has teamed up with a group of investors and already made a deposit on the building.

The group will purchase it with a contingency that a parking variance can be obtained from the borough’s zoning board.

The Blair is owned by the Holliday Entertainment Corp. They also on the Miller 6 cinemas in Lewistown Pa. along with the Gateway Cinema Center in Edwardsville Pa. If the Blair is anything like the Miller or Gateway theaters, they Sucked the money right out of it and didn’t put a dime back in. I am wrong, the Miller theater finally got some much needed upgrades.
