CORVALLIS, OR — With a decision expected soon, residents are banding together to prevent a retail complex going up on the site of the Whiteside Theatre.

A group of Corvallis residents is asking the state to put a stop to plans to turn a historic downtown movie theater into a retail complex.

The Whiteside Theater is listed on the city’s register of historic places. It dates to the 1920s.

A group of investors from Portland have an option to buy the building. They are planning to put shops on the ground floor, and a restaurant upstairs.

I suggest that the residents fight back real hard. Contact as much news media as possiple to embarrass some local yahoos. Here in Vickbsurg no one had a chance becouse CBL closed the cinema taking the resident by surprise.
