Campaigners Bid To Save Scarborough’s Futurist Theatre


Futurist Theatre


From BBC News.


Campaigners attempting to save a 1920s’ theatre threatened with demolition want a “stay of execution” to come up with a business plan.

Councillors in Scarborough will discuss plans to demolish the Futurist Theatre on 9 January.

Campaigners told a public meeting on Thursday they planned to form a charitable trust to run the theatre, which closed in 2014.

Scarborough Borough Council has not commented on the proposals.

The Conservative-run council’s cabinet has previously judged the Futurist is not sustainable as a theatrical venue.
