I hope someone can save this theatre. About 20 years ago, I was part of the live-audience Rocky Horror Picture Show cast there on Friday and Saturday nights. (You know…the geeks that get up and act out the movie in front of the screen? Yeah, that was us.) It really is an amazing place; yes, in desperate need of repair, but with some of the original art-deco still in place. (I hope the attempt to turn it into a church didn’t destroy all of that.) It actually wouldn’t take much to turn it into a live theatre or general-purpose performance hall for the city of Renton – which, frankly, could use a little more old-school class in its buildings.
