The Monarch Theatre has be purchased by the City Centre Development Agency (CCDA) and is currently in the process of creating a committee to help with operations, and restoration, and a friends group to help raise funds.

Our current plan will see the Monarch run as a movie theatre 5 days a week, and be available for special bookings – weddings, business presentations, dance recitals, concerts, and so on.

We look forward to the ongoing support of the community to help up bring back a piece of history, and to keep it running for years to come.

Sharp photo circa 1948; the vertical sign must have been a later addition: http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=2104163&d=1388298330
