Preservation Alert Cinema Theatre Threatened With Demolition
BERKELEY, CA — This is from the website:

ALERT!! Landmark Hearing scheduled for this Monday, February 3rd at 7:30 PM, at the North Berkeley Senior Center, corner Martin Luther King Jr. Way and Hearst Street. The public is urgently needed to attend. Please speak out about preserving Berkeley’s cultural landmarks! If we don’t get a good turn-out, we WILL lose this precious Cinema Treasure!

As you are reading this, the Cinema Theatre, currently called The Fine Arts, is in grave danger of being demolished, not for being derilict ( the building is sound and well-maintained ), but for being in the way of a planned development.

If you are anywhere near the area, we urge you to attend and lend your support for the Cinema.
