TOLEDO, OH — A Toledo icon, the Showcase Cinemas, after sitting dormant for 4 years, may have new life with new uses.

City Councilman Tom Waniewski says he’s been talking with developers who want to put in two hotels, restaurants and shops on the site.

The Toledo-Lucas County Planning Commission considers the developers proposal at a meeting next month.

After reading the article, it really does not sound as if there is likely to be any “new life” for the theater; it sounds more like someone just wants the site for redevelopment. I went to this theater several times and one could hardly put “two hotels, restaurants, and shops” on that site without tearing the multiplex down.
