CORONADO, CA — If all goes as planned, the Village Theatre will reopen as as a triplex in the spring of 2011. Closed since 2000, the renovated theater will have an art deco-inspired interior design that is the work of Joseph Musil, who recently passed away. The theater will be operated by Five Star Theatres of Los Angeles.

The restoration is expected to take about six months.

The city has worked to restore the theater since before it closed. In return for a redevelopment grant of nearly $2.7 million, Five Star will renovate the 8,500-square-foot movie house and show first-run films until at least 2026.

There is more at Signon San Diego.

It pleases me, to no end, that my late friend, Joseph Musil, is gone but NOT forgotten and his incredibly imaginative theater designs will live on for future generations to enjoy at the Village Theatre.

If you were fortunate enough, like I was, to know Joe and be associated with or even visit his magnificent “Salon of the Theatres” studio in Santa Ana, Ca., then you had the treat of a lifetime!
