Plans made to reopen Royal T III Theatre in Le Mars
LE MARS, IA — Eric Hilsabeck, who owns the Riviera Theatre in Sioux City, has submitted plans to renovate and reopen the Royal T III Theater which closed in 2009. The theater originally opened at least eighty years ago as the Royal, and was later twinned, then triplexed.
According to a letter to the Le Mars City Council from Neal Adler, director of the LBIC, designs to renovate the theater are complete, cost estimates have been gathered, and a purchase agreement is in place.
The total cost to restore the historic downtown building and update the theater will be more than $700,000, Adler stated.
There is more in the Le Mars Sentinel.
