Jim, I agree with many of your perceptions of city politics, fortunately the law is on our side, and if we have to enforce it we will; the first concern is they not destroy the building. You could really help by placing a few phone calls or emails or do you just like to complain, it appears you know your way around city hall and planning
Thanks for the help
The Coronet is not closing February 13 as stated several times on Chanel 7 news today. Who misinformed Chanel 7 and why. We need to get the word out the theater is still open for business. I talked with several people in front of the theater an hour ago, there is a lot of false information flying around.The building connot be demolished until an environmental review takes place. By law nothing may be removed from the premises I believe until this is complete. The proposed project has not been approved and permits have not been issued to date. The first step is the enviromental review which is in progress now. We still have time to preserve this piece of history. WE NEED YOUR HELP
If you wish to help preserve this theater please write a letter to Michelle Missenger at the state office of historic preservation stating the value of the art deco moderne style and the cultural history ie. Star Wars of the Coronet.

Thanks for your help.
