North end a better place for new theatre

Any new theatre should be built in the north end, say on a roadside of the Linley Valley park – the park theatre.

To the Editor,

Re: Port Theatre expansion an asset to city, Letters, Oct. 2.

Theatre is not copycat rock bands or has-beens that a full house doesn’t cover costs of.

Any new theatre should be built in the north end, say on a roadside of the Linley Valley park – the park theatre, with free day parking for park users and free at night for theatre goers. Hire a manager with a real business plan that makes money for the theatre.

Not like downtown, where taxpayers pay for subsidizing elites’ entertainment.
