According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The theater has been sold to the Wheeling Visitors Bureau and will be brought up to code. Great News.

Anyone know what happened at the hearing referenced in the above article?

The facade of this theater is spectacular. The citizens of this town would be out of their mind to let a theater like this slip through their fingers.

The story of 3/15/08 states that the city has pledged 2,500,000 bucks towards the renovation of the capitol, but that the tax-increment financing plan cannot be used if a private entity buys the building. But it appears the city is very interested in getting it reopened, calling it vital to the redevelopment of downtoan.
