That is great news. Every time I have walked by the place over the last few years, I felt more and more discouraged that anything would ever come of the place again.

Awesome news! This theatre must be a grand site all lit up at night! There is alot of filming being done in the area, it would be nice to see premires, screenings and celebrity appearances here- some charity going towards rebuilding efforts.
