Good things are happening! The Regency Cafe just moved into one theater storefront, and an independent video store, with a screening room, will open soon in the other!
A web site. Very little info so far, but stay tuned!
here is info on the LEDC:
From the Lansdowne Borough Council minutes, June 6 2007:
“Mr. Lee mentioned that the Lansdowne Theater sign is in disrepair and action is necessary. Mr. Travers stated that several citations have been issued and the building has been sold to the LEDC/GLCA partnership.”
The mayor of Lansdowne told me!
It is a fact that it has been sold, but I still have not heard any concrete plans or info about next steps! I had the chance to enter the theater a few months ago (I noticed that the front door was open,so I went inside.) The place is absolutely beautiful, but totally trashed. There is mouldy carpet, and bits of fallen plaster everywhere. It will take enormous work to bring it back to life.
I heard this weekend that the theater has been sold. Does anyone have any information— who, what are the plans, etc.?
