Sign a Petition to Save Proctor's Theater
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - Proctor's Theater, endangered history, Troy New York, RESTORENY grant
Contributed By: Richard Herrick
Email The Author: rherrick2@msn.com

We would like to invite you to sign a petition to save Proctor's Theater in Troy from demolition.

The theater was built in 1914 and remains the last existing grand movie palace in Troy. While the building is in disrepair, it does not need to be torn down. In 1979 Proctor's was placed on National Register of Historic Places - but this distinction may not save it from the wrecking ball.

The city of Troy will soon apply for a RESTORENY grant from New York State to demolish the theater. So far over 2,700 citizens have signed a petition to Governor Paterson asking him to grant money for the renovation of the theater, not its destruction.

Would you take a moment and add your name? The link is below:

Please pass this email along to people you think might be interested. Together we can save this historic landmark.  More info here: www.troyproctors.com
