So have you ever wanted to own your own theater? Now's your chance...kind of. The Interplayer's building is up for sale for the asking price of $1.1 million. The one condition is that the theater organization will be able to lease back all of their existing space critical to putting on performances. That arrangement should still leave about 5k-7k sqf to do whatever floats your boat.
Our choice: buy it, lose the wall of glass blocks, lease back space to Interplayers while opening a bar/lounge restaurant on the ground floor. Theaters generate large volumes of people wanting to spend money on good food and drink (NOTE: AMC, Fox, Magic Lantern, Crosby). And anyways, wouldn't more evening foot-traffic of the positive kind be nice south of the viaduct?
