FRESNO (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The historic Warnors Theatre in downtown Fresno California will be closing its doors on June 30, 2007. The theatre has been donated to an unspecified non-profit which will begin fund-raising for operations, programming and renovations of the building. A date for re-opening of the venue has not been made public at this time.
The theater, located at the corner of Fulton and Tuolumne Streets in downtown Fresno, is an eclectic blend of Moorish, Spanish and Italian Renaissance Revival elements. Originally opened as the Pantages Theater in 1928, the theatre has been subsequently operated by the Warner Brothers under whom it was operated as a cinema. Purchased by Frank Caglia in 1973, the theatre was retasked to once again provide a home for the lively arts.- CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
