I visited this theatre in December 2015. The ground level of the theatre was flooded – the chairs were standing in five inches of water. This was a very recent problem: only three weeks prior, cracks had opened up in the floor (and in the walls) and water seeped in. Needless to say, this means the theater is no longer operational. (It was until November 2015). The manager told me they were looking into renovating or possibly tearing the structure down to make room for a new one.
