Reader's view: Another theater not needed in Duluth

Why in the name of common sense do we need another theater here in Duluth in a refurbished NorShor Theatre? We already have 20 screens here in the city and seven more in Superior (according to the phone book). On top of that there is a fine live theater at the Duluth Playhouse on Michigan Street and at the University of Minnesota Duluth. Just how many do we need?

The old NorShor has outlived its usefulness and its repair would be a great waste of our money. That $7 million could be much better spent on our very poor streets; everyone would benefit from this use of those dollars.

Let’s do some better thinking on this subject.
