Eltrym Historic Theater to close

BAKER CITY, OR — Another sad loss to the Northwest moviegoing landscape as the Eltrym Historic Theater closes:

Instead of signs promoting the latest blockbusters, “Do Not Enter” signs adorn the front of the Eltrym Historic Theater in Baker City.

It is the only movie theater in Baker County. But city officials forced the theater to close on Friday over safety concerns for moviegoers.

This is terrible news. I know that the owner was fighting with the city over fire sprinklers. The city would rather have a closed business I guess.

The Eltrym won their case in court and the theatre’s grand reopening is scheduled for May 4th 2007. All of us movie goers that love the Eltrym Historic Theatre can look forward to many years of fine movies. This is a wonderful ending to an unnecessary situation. Even the former city building inspector (who worked with the owners to make sure it was redone according to code) said he wouldn’t change one thing regarding his ok'ing and signing off on the renovation of the Eltrym. He said the buiding meets code and I will be there for the reopening and look forward to seeing all of you there.
