Just passed by this theater today and it is still for sale. There is a big “For Sale” sign on the marquee. I have to say it looks pretty sad. A 450 seat theater that gets cut up into 4 theaters? It’s got to be terrible. I didn’t get to go in but I did peek in through the doors and it just didn’t look the least bit interesting architecturally.
