    Any of my fellow Franklinites have any scoop on what the status of the renovation is. Their website is dead (as usual)..
    The theater was pretty much before my time here and I only ever got to see a coupla flicks there but I hear they once did midnight movies etc. which would be so cool to have here...
    Any info?

    From what I understand, it's being renovated but I don't know if a date has been established for opening.

    I think they plan on doing things like they have at the Belcourt.
