Renovation & addition to historic theatre into mixed use musical & performing arts, movie theatre and church facility
This unique project will involve the renovation of the historic Ritz Theatre in downtown Escondido, which has sat mostly dormant for nearly two decades. New Vintage Church received city approval in December for church occupancy and the plan to remodel the building into a mixed-use center for the musical and performing arts, as well as a single-screen movie theater. Though the church will own the building, religious-based content will only make up 10 to 15 percent of its total activities, including Sunday morning church gatherings. For the rest of the time, the building will be rented out to the general public.
Total size of the 2 story building is 21,018 SF, including new and remodeled spaces. Read more about the project here.
