Rival project’s withdrawal from city funds competiton may boost efforts to save the State Theater
WOODLAND, CA — A rival developer’s decision to build a proposed twelve-screen multiplex in Woodland, CA without the use of a loan from the city’s redevelopment agency may help citizen efforts to preserve the now-closed State Theater. The Friends of the State favor an alternative project that would include a multiplex that would include the now-closed State. Without competion for the redevelopment funds, the chances of the proposal’s success may have improved, but there is concern that the area may not be able to support two multiplexes.
The city should have plans for the theater by the end of the week, Corkill said. The finished product could include digital projectors, solar lights on the roof and “motion seating.”
“The theater really will be the nicest theater in the Woodland-Davis metro area,” he said.
