Plans to rebuild, refurbish, and re-glitzify Santa Barbara’s
historic Granada Theatre hit a slight roadblock when the city’s
Historic Landmarks Commission refused to grant the theater owner
permission to install new copper doors in the Granada’s grand
entryway. Commission members argued the Granada never had copper
doors in the past and suggested instead the owners should make
their grand statement with wooden doors. The theater owner – who
has enjoyed strong political and financial support from City
Hall – appealed the matter to the City Council, which is scheduled
to render a decision September 12.
