I really hope this gets approved. I love this building and it would be nice to see something with character getting rehabbed vs. another generic, bland office tower. 

Today the Planning Commission will vote on a proposal to rehab The Strand Theater into a live performance space for the American Conservatory Theater. The former movie theater was constructed in 1917, but has been vacant since 2003. ACT will rehab the theater, with an associated rehearsal space/black box theater, costume and sound/ lighting facilities, offices, and a ground‐floor café.
