BALTIMORE, MD — With a possible foreclosure around the corner, there is talk of who might be the next owner of the Senator Theatre.

James “Buzz” Cusack, who runs the Charles theater with his nephew, John Standiford, said he expected to be among the bidders.

Developer David Cordish, while saying he had no plans to bid on the theater, said he would be interested in operating it as a nonprofit.

Anyone else find it odd that James “Buzz” Cusack is identified as a potential bidder for property and also serves as a commissioner on the Baltimore Commission for Historical & Architectural Preservation (CHAP) and that said group has an application (apparently not submitted by the current owner) which would designate the interior of The Senator as a “Landmark” and add it to their “Public Interior Special List”?

As I hear it, if approved, it would mean no owner of theatre could make changes to its interior without an okay from CHAP.

Does this sound fishy to anyone else?
