Miramar Theatre purchased by auto dealer
SAN CLEMENTE, CA — The Miramar Theatre has been purchased by an auto dealer, Marc Spizzirri. It was built in 1937 and has been vacant for over a decade. The previous owner of the theatre had planned to build a 40,000 square foot complex of shops and residences but ran into resistance from local residents who wanted the theatre preserved.
Auto dealer Marc Spizzirri has indicated he plans to demolish the rear of the theatre which once housed a bowling alley while keeping the remainder of the theatre closer to its old design.
A complete article on the purchase can be read in the Orange County Business Journal.(reg rquired)
Let’s hope “closer to its old design” means restoration.
