What if the City loaned itself money to fill all the potholes
on the City's streets? Think we could get Redevelopment to do that?

Earth to Jim Schwenterley:

If the Del Mar is at risk of "being left behind", to the best of my observations, it isn't that the theater wouldn't be 3-D, it's because of the ugly, horrendous, screaming riff-raff, and other professional pan-handlers & neer-do-wells that camp out in front of your theater.

I almost without exception, never venture down there.

The place is deviant central.

Reading the story, the situation sounds like this: The city is in the movie theatre business, in competition with private business. It takes a cut from the revenues collected by the operators it allows to run the city-owned facility. It uses part of that cut to establish a fund to improve the theatre property that it owns. But rather than draw from that fund to make improvements and pay for them directly, it loans the fund money to the operators, which they use to make the improvements and then pay back at (low) interest.

Can this possibly be right? Maybe it is just late and my eyes are not seeing correctly.

Does the city-owned Del Mar seriously expect to be seen, and receive the same public sympathy, as private sector independent, small-time theatre operators?

Welcome to the Soviet Republic. The state theater will receieve an infusion of money from the Czar himself. Premier Rotkin will be on hand to check your papers at the door and to collect additional fees, based on party affiliation.

The state run agency, Think Local Commrads First, welcomes the anti capitalist move even in the face of the additional $1,000,000 deficit that will be caused by the hiring of eight additional secret police.
