BLOOMINGTON, IN — According to a report in the Indiana Daily Student, a hearing will be held this coming Wednesday to determine the fate of the Von Lee Cinema. At question is whether or not the theater’s current owner should be granted a liquor license, which is required for the theater to become a restaurant and bar. Opponents of the plan — namely, the “Save The Von Lee” organization — argue that the Von Lee should remain a cinema.

I love when people butt in and try to tell people how they can or cannot use their property. Expecially when they are noboy groups like the Save the Von Lee. I hope it gets turned into a restaraunt. it’s their building and they will decide how its used, not the “Save the von lee” group

NPR’s “Morning Edition” ran a segment on the Von Lee on December 25, 2003: <http://www.npr.org/rundowns/segment.php?wfId=1570751>.
