It reopened in 1993 as the Huntridge Performing Arts Theatre. After a roof collapse in 1995, the theatre was almost entirely rebuilt. It closed in 2001 and was used as storage for the adjacent furniture store. In 2004, it was used for some heavy metal concerts but it has been unused since then. The building was repainted in 2013. These photos are from 2014. The building was still vacant in 2019. In 2021, it was announced that the building would be restored as a live entertainment venue. The building on the right which was not part of the origina design will be demolished. A vintage-style brewery will be built in its place. For more, see this website. [map]
