Let WalMart open its store in a vacant land. We should keep the Grandview and use it to attract visitors.
One idea I was thinking is to use it in the summer to hold International Film Festival, as Canada has been successful in doing that and recently they become very arrogant by refusing top artists from other countries to come to compete.

We drove past the Grandview this past weekend while driving down route 5 looking for places to photograph for our photography website. A search for the Grandview online lead me to Tony’s site. They are still fighting for this theater. The photographs my husband and I took can be found in our “the forgotten” gallery, along with some from the Van Buren down the road in Dunkirk, the motel across the street from the Grandview and more here: View link .

Sorry to say it is true, We are still fighting to save the screen tower for relocation, sadly our town officials do not care, The Supervisor from the Town of Brant has been working with us for a backup plan to relocate it to Brant, however none of us expected demolition now. Afterall, the sale of the property to walmart may Never even happen, and now the owner may end up with an empty lot, while WE were intrested in purchasing it AS-IS if the walmart sale failed…

The loser here?

The Town of Evans/Angola and the children who have just been robbed of one more bit of our heritage and Family activities…

This is a SAD day… We are watching America slip away a little bit here and a little bit there while everyone looks the other way. :(

Again, the ugly face of politics has dominated over classic Americana and nostalgia. This is why I am as anti-political as they come. Despite being born in 1969, I live for the past as opposed to today’s ever-so-screwed up society, especially in terms of television, music, and of course, drive-in theaters.

I’ll be hoping and praying that the relocation to Brant goes through.
