This petition was started by the CEO of Davenports Supper Club & VIP Cigar Lounge LLC to save the California Theatre in downtown San Diego from the wrecking ball that the current owners plan for it. The current owners have submitted an application for the demolition permit to Civic San Diego the redevelopment arm of City Government for approval.
Civic San Diego is reviewing the permit application for completeness and will be making a decision in September of this year.
Signing this petition will send the message to them and City Council that the building is worth more than being reduced to a pile of rubble by an unconcerned owner who over the years has allowed the building to decay due to neglect and blocking all efforts to purchase the building.
The theatre is the last historic building of this kind and is listed on the local historic registry by SOHO, there is a well developed plan to make this building financially viable and restored to it's original use and condition.
This site is part of old San Diego and deserves another chance at having music, dance, plays featured again since its original opening on April 22, 1927. We don't need another glass box instead of a Spanish Revival masterpiece where we can all afford the fine arts and will support the community.
There is vast support online from San Diegans and all over the world to save this building from destruction, many have lent their expertise over the last 7 years to develop the Davenport Supper Club plan to restore the building into a State of the Art LEED Platinum Theatre the first of it's kind in California.
Sign this petition to add your voice supporting the saving of the Historic California Theatre from demolition by an uncaring owner, support the redevelopment of this site which will add over 600 construction jobs for 3 yrs and 150 full time jobs running the venue DON'T ALLOW THE LOSS OF ANOTHER SAN DIEGO TREASURE!
