How Coronado’s Village Theatre is being saved

CORONADO, CA — The previously announced renovations of the Village Theatre are finally getting under way as this piece discusses the city’s relationship with this classic gem of a theater.

Older residents long for the “pre-bridge,” small-town character of Coronado and many new residents come because they like what’s still left of that atmosphere, said former Mayor Tom Smisek, who was involved in the early restoration talks.

“People can walk or ride their bikes anywhere,” Smisek said. “That wide landscaped median strip down Orange Avenue may not be the best way to move traffic, but it keeps that area nice. We have the overall ambiance of a little town, and our little theater kind of fits with what we’re trying to keep here.”

The city of Coronado is my favorite place to stay when I go down to Diego County to see the zoo. It a great escape from the noise and pollution of the rest of Diego County. Has the best restaurants too.
