Historic Theater Renovation Planned (Granada Theater, The Dalles, Oregon)
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - Granada Theater, Historic Theater, The Dalles, National Register of Historic Places
Contributed By: Associated Press

One of the first movie theaters west of the Mississippi River to show talking pictures has been silenced for almost five years.  But the historic Granada Theater in The Dalles, Oregon, which dates to 1929 and is on the National Register of Historic Places, is getting a second chance. 

A tourism company has bought the building to use as a venue for seminars and acoustic concerts, as well as a tasting room for local wineries.

Buzz Smith, Heidi Begeot and Neal Capellino of True North Productions are planning a remodel of the building, but will maintain its historical integrity.  The company expects to sink $1.5 million to $2 million into the building over the next 24 to 48 months, though construction won't begin until next May, 2008.
