Tower Theater photo You-Are-Here
A new phase for a downtown theater? Last week, renovation plans for the Tower Theater on Broadway surfaced on the Dept of Planning's web site. Per the application, owner Ezat Delijani is looking to sell alcohol at the 1927 theater, and allow for public dancing and live entertainment. The request is all part of a larger proposal "to restore the 20,106 square-foot Tower Theater and reestablish historic uses of the property, including the use of the theater for live performance, special events, and movies." The theater has been used off and on for events, according to Blogdowntown, which covered the Edwardian Ball,held at the space earlier this year. And its renovation has been talked about as part of the larger Bringing Back Broadway effort, a plan to revitalize this stretch of Broadway.
