For years we’ve been fielding calls from loyal patrons begging us to open a Laemmle in the Santa Clarita Valley. As reported by The Signal, we are in the very early stages of a real project in Old Town Newhall. In fact, the project is on the agenda at Tuesday’s Santa Clarita City Council meeting.
Here’s your chance to be heard! Join us at the meeting to lend your voice in support! Your local elected officials need to hear that there is a real demand for Laemmle Theatres in the SCV.
The Santa Clarita City Council meeting is scheduled for 6pm on Tuesday, July 14 at City Hall, 23920 Valencia Blvd. Hang around afterwards to chat with Laemmle President, Greg Laemmle and Laemmle Vice President, Jay Reisbaum. Hope so see you there!
UPDATE: The vote was unanimous. 3-0. Two council members had to recuse themselves because of conflict of interest. However, one of the council members who had to recuse herself was allowed to speak from the floor as a public citizen, and she spoke in favor of the project.
The next step in the process is to negotiate a detailed Purchase and Sale Agreement with city staff. This document will provide detailed information on how the project would proceed, and will provide the legal framework for what each party is required to deliver in order for the project to proceed. We’ll keep you updated! And thank you!
