This building has been empty for quite some time.

A few years ago the interior was gutted in preparation for turning the place into a bar or night club, but problems with the city concerning a building permit put an end to the construction.

Today, in 2012, the building is empty and has a “for lease” sign on it.

The main auditorium was the first Dolby Stereo screen in the city IIRC.
