    Considering it seems to stay empty most of the the year, it would be in the best interest of the community to reduce the costs and increase attendance for local shows and events. The Memorial is such a beautiful theater that it just seems ridiculous for those who own, manage, invest…to not be willing to share the historical and aesthetic elements of this building.
