Locals are hoping to rescue and restore the historic Park Theater, once one of the most popular movie houses in San Mateo County.

The City Council will hold a special session Monday at 2 p.m. at City Hall to discuss committing $500,000 to its restoration and preservation. Resident Andy Duncan, who owns the building, has proposed turning it into a dance studio for the long-running Menlo Park Academy of Dance.
