Culver Town Council Holds off on Movie Theater Project

The Culver Town Council decided Tuesday night to hold off on moving forward with any plans for the Culver movie theater.

Town Manager Jonathan Leist recommended waiting to see what the budget outlook will be in 2018 and pick up the conversation then. The property is for sale and it could sell by the time the council feels comfortable in revisiting a proposal to study facility and rehabilitation needs for the building.

Leist said the movie theater project will remain as a complimentary project for now within the town’s final Stellar Communities Designation Program paperwork to be submitted on Aug. 25. There aren’t enough plans to include it as a feasible focus at this time, according to Leist. Council President Ginny Bess Munroe commented that there were too many uncertainties.
