Regent Theatre Update

The news on the tragic demise of the Regent Theatre just goes from bad to worse and breaks my heart with every word I read. Irreplaceable history, architecture and character gone with each swing of the wrecking ball. A wrecking ball that's not even supposed to be used. The artefacts that were to be preserved were supposed to be removed by hand, not smashed to pieces with a wrecking ball.
