shame.. would make great 2nd run theatre but water damage and lack of care have this building in shape where whoever buys it will need to demolish it.

To be competitive, this cinema needs a major overhaul. It may be cheaper to tear it down and start over. NCG chose to reopen the nearby 6-screen Courtland Cinemas because it was the right size and didn’t need much work before reopening.
