City of Windsor a step closer to taking over Capitol Theatre
WINDSOR, ONTARIO, CANADA — A regional senior justice ruled in favour of the city of Windsor concerning the bankrupt Capitol Theatre. The city paid $1.8 million to help save the theatre from demolition and the judge ruled that it was a mortgage and not a grant.
The theatre was occasionally opened for events until the supervision of the theatre’s bankruptcy trustee. Even if the trustee does not appeal the ruling, there are other legal issues to be resolved before the theatre’s future is finally determined.
