Open House at Hollywood Theater this Saturday
MINNEAPOLIS, MN — A free open house and tour of the long-closed Hollywood Theater at 2815 Johnson Street is scheduled for Saturday, May 15, from Noon to 5:00 p.m. The city hopes that the event might spur interest in reuse or redevelopment of the Art Deco theater that opened in 1935 and closed in 1987.
After just a few short minutes inside this treasured landmark, I was eating my words. Tearing down the Hollywood Theater would be an absolute tragedy. While the place needs a serious Heidi Montag-type facelift, there’s still maximum potential for it to be restored into the great entertainment hub it once was.
