Special session to address future of Park Theater

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.
