FREMONT, CA — After locals came together to save the Center Theater, the city is now supporting it again.

For a community group that wants to turn the Center Theater into a performing arts center, the message from City Hall is clear: “Break a leg, but don’t break the bank.”

City leaders have committed to acquiring the 1940s theater in the Centerville district and working with the Centerville Theater Preservation Group to turn it into a community theater that would support nonprofit performing arts groups.

But for that to happen, the community group first must build a $3 million endowment so that the city won’t be stuck paying for theater operations.
