Balboa Theatre Opens!

Downtown's Balboa Theatre will be reopening in January 2008. The historic 1924-movie palace will once again be a vital part of the city.

CCDC states that their "commitment to the restoration of the Balboa Theatre and to the creation of a true theater district downtown will be a key component in downtown San Diego's continued revitalization."

Some of you probably remember when SOHO held our People In Preservation Awards in the closed and derelict theater. SOHO was heavily involved in raising awareness to its plight and this was one way to show that people wanted to experience this fabulous building even if it meant sitting in the debris in their evening wear. That was almost 10 years ago and we announced at that time the theater was soon to be restored! It took a while longer than expected, but it's finally happened and we are thrilled. We hope to have a SOHO event there once again soon. We commend CCDC highly and look forward to recognizing them publicly.
