Old Royal to return
ARKADELPHIA, AR — After years as the Print Mania building, the Old Royal Theater is coming back.
Last week, the city of Arkadelphia closed the purchase on the Print Mania building, which was previously the Old Royal Theater. The site was originally an art deco style theater built in 1932. Plans for renovations are currently in the works, beginning with moving out the contents of the print shop and then hiring an architect to restore the building with an eye for its former style but with all the modern amenities.
“It has to be state-of-the-art sound, state-of-the-art visual and it has to be a destination,” said Jimmy Bolt, city manager and the spearhead for the project.
