MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A judge has ruled against a group’s request for a temporary restraining order preventing the demolition of a historic theater.
The Friends of the Terrace Theatre requested the restraining order to stop property owner Brixmor from demolishing the Robbinsdale, Minnesota, theater.
Prior to the group’s lawsuit, a Hy-Vee was planned for the site.
The group could still appeal the decision. A second group, Save the Historic Terrace Theatre, says the focus will now shift from preservation of the theater to the preservation of remaining artifacts.
The Terrace Theatre was built in 1951 and has been closed since 1999.
