The cracks shown in the photo above are visible in Google Maps satellite imagery when the theatre was still there.

Given that the building was almost certainly in disrepair to begin with, I assume now that inspectors have become involved that this wouldn't just be shoring up the foundation - it would also be fixing everything else they found, no?

Assuming this gets knocked down, I wonder what can realistically go in its place. It's not a huge lot, and you definitely would need to rebuild to modern standards. Maybe another Modi?

This article's title seems to suggest that the building will be renovated and reopen, but at the end it says the owner *could* make extensive repairs to bring it up to code for occupancy. So I don't really know exactly what is happening. Hopefully it stays around.

I had no idea about Lake Blaisedell. That’s facinating, especially since I live on the site.

Lake Blaisedell reappears every few years, when it rains hard enough:
