The Old Fulton Theatre is making an encore performance. Last month, The Brick District organization voted unanimously to take on the renovation of the historic building. The theater has been abandoned for over five years now, and hasn’t been functional since 2005. District president Thomas Riley said the theater has a lot of potential, but needs work.
“We’ve been working on downtown development for a number of years," he said. "The theater represents probably the biggest potential asset we could have for downtown development… but right now, it might be the biggest detriment.”
