Somebody tagged the landmarked facade of the Metro Theater in recent days.
It is unclear what exactly is depicted by the spray paint, but it appears that somebody got themselves on top of the theater’s vintage marquee.
A misinterpretation of the decade-old “Space Available” sign? Or a sign of the decay of a long-abandoned building?
Maybe now the Landmarks Preservation Commission will get involved in the effort to save the Metro.
At present, the theater is in the process of reopening as an upscale Alamo Drafthouse dine-in movie theater. This reopening has stalled, however, as the new owners have been navigating the state’s liquor license process since September 2022.
