New Granada Owners Take The Keys

The Dalles Mayor Steve Lawrence formally handed over the keys to the Granada Theatre to purchasers Chuck Gomez and Debra Liddell at a ceremony outside the historic facility in downtown The Dalles.  The Columbia Gateway Urban Renewal Agency purchased the property for $365,410 in 2010.  Gomez and Liddell are paying $60,000 and promising to make $300,000 in improvements over the next three years.  The pair own a similar theatre in Watseka, Illinois, and plan on a full historic restoration of the Granada to house what they termed “national acts.”  Gomez says they have not yet had a lengthy inspection of the building, so there isn’t a solid timetable for getting the renovation done, but he adds they do hope to have a grand opening in the fall.  Gomez says they feel there is a strong demographic to make the Granada successful.
