I’m happy to report that the Senate Theatre re-opened on May 20, 2011.

If the fire that caused the damage was of NO FAULT of the theater, then surely (and don’t call me Shirley) the insurance coverage is the responsibility of the owner of the building next door?

Perhaps the theater owner should investigate an insurance clause called “PROXIMATE CAUSE.” Good luck folks and don’t give up!
