Last night, about 75 people gathered at Studio Bob on Port Angeles, to see if the theater could be preserved and used for arts related purposes.
Cathy Haight, with the Port Angeles Arts Council, says that the purpose of the forum was to brainstorm about how the theater might be preserved for future use by the local art community.
Haight said that another meeting was planned for early June after the persons present worked to explore the feasibility of the proposals brought up at the forum.
