Oh, no, this can't be!!! : ( How can anyone bulldoze this historic piece of Menlo Park?!? I was born and raised in Menlo Park. When we were kids (late 1940s, early 1950s), our mom drove us down to the Park Theater every single Saturday afternoon to watch movies. Admission price was only 15 cents!!!!! Yes!!! And, we were treated to not only a movie, but newsreels, cartoons and a featured serial episode, to boot. Oh, this is so sad. If I weren't retired and living at the poverty level on Social Security, I would buy the Park Theater in a heartbeat, and restore it to the great movie theater that it once was. I don't want to know the demolition date!!! This news is more than I can bear!!! : (

Several years ago the City of Menlo Park stopped the owner from demolishing the building after residents protested that it was an historic structure. Why has there been no notice to residents that the city was considering changing its mind to allow demolition?

What happened? I thought they were going to convert the building! I am so sad! The Art Deco Society wanted to save the sign,but no that was no saved either!
