CLEMSON, SC — The city is evaluating the options to save the Astro III.

Clemson Mayor Larry Abernathy informed between 20-25 Clemson University students earlier this week that nothing new has occurred regarding efforts to purchase the vacant Carmike Cinema Astro Triple Theatre from the Mount Pleasant family which owns the building and property.

Abernathy did tell students he is still talking with a potential investor, and if the family agrees, the investor would purchase the theater, while the city would purchase the parking spaces at the College Avenue site.
