    East Vancouver Might Lose The Rio!

    Recent zoning changes on Commercial Drive is endangering The Rio Theatre, one of Vancouver’s prized one-screen theatres that hosts films, music, and live performances. Developers want to tear down the historic theatre, built in 1938, and the owner, Corinne Lea, has started an online fundraiser to raise money to save The Rio Theatre.

    They want to raise $1 million from the community by their deadline of April 16th. Saving the building will cost $3 million for a down payment, but they plan to raise the other $2 million through private investors.
