01 - 03 - 2014 Last ditch appeal made by Bellefonte theatre group
[CDT[ - The Bellefonte Historical and Cultural Association has made its final pitch to gain control of the Garman Theatre before the structure is completely demolished, but time is working against the organization. Attorney Bruce Manchester said he filed an appeal to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, asking for an expedited hearing to challenge lower court decisions. The developer owns the building; his workforce housing plan was approved by the Bellefonte Industrial Development Authority and upheld by Centre County President Judge Thomas King Kistler and a Commonwealth Court judge in an appeal.
