Liberty/Paramount Theatre, Youngstown, Ohio
Grande Venues, Inc. (Purchased recently by the Retzler Group) from Chicago, Illinois and USA Parking of Cleveland, Ohio acquired the historic theatre in downtown Youngstown, for $79,900 from Ohio One Corporation. Architects Lowenstein + Durante and general contractor, Marous Brothers from Willoughby, Ohio have been retained to lead the $4.8 million project. The design calls for the restoration of the Grand Proscenium Theatre, for smaller theatre and music events, the creation (adaptive reuse) of two digital cinemas in the balcony, a white tablecloth restaurant, and theatre bar and retail in the basement. Funding is ongoing and Youngstown State University will now play a pivotal role in the development. Coincidentally Mayor Jay Williams attended college in Ellendale, North Dakota, the site of another Retzler project: The Ellendale Hotel Renovation. (Photos by Nick Hutson)
