Inside The Spiffy New Capri Theatre On West Broadway...Such A Contrast With SOME Buildings On West Broadway!

I missed the grand opening of the Capri Theatre on West Broadway some months back, but other media had it covered, of course. Last weekend's Art FLOW event was the first opportunity I had to go inside the refurnished, revamped, restored and REALLY NICE Capri Theatre. This is the building where Prince played in 1979 and, soon after, put the Minneapolis music scene on the radar of the world. It could happen again, right here in NoMi.
Right now, West Broadway is a study in contrasts. There are buildings undergoing intensive renovation and then there are, well, buildings like the ones that belong to slumlord Keith Reitman, click here.
It's obvious which way the trend is heading, but some people are slowing down the trend.
