The Heritage Vancouver Society has released its annual list of top 10 endangered sites in the city. Our very own Hollywood Theatre is top on the list:

“The Art Deco Hollywood Theatre is a precious community landmark built in 1935-36, and one of our last intact neighborhood theatres. The current owner has not expressed interest in retaining the interior of this significant theatre and has not found a buyer who would maintain its public assembly use. The only proposal so far would retain the facade, make significant changes to the interior and end the building’s use as a cultural community space.” — Heritage Vancouver Society

What happens next? Well, Kits residents are known for civic action. We’ll leave that in your capable hands.
