banquo79 commented about Varsity Theater on Oct 12, 2004 at 12:11 pm

The theater was bought again and will soon be more of a theatre. The new owner wants to turn it into a play house. He is in the process of remodeling now and wants to reopen by november (probably late november). It will be a venue for artists to gather at the all day cafe, and a bar that will occupy the lobby area. And the theater space will be just that, except it will return to its vaudeville roots in that live action theatre will be performed, as well as musical acts and tours. The owner wants to make the space available for fledgling actors from the university of minnesota to put on plays that perhaps they write themselves or if they want to get a troupe going they can start there. Its a “just off campus” real audience experience that he wants to give them, he’s a former actor himself.
