Developer buys Bluefield theater

BLUEFIELD, W.Va. (AP) -- A development group wants to restore an old theater in Bluefield and make it a part of revitalizing the downtown.

The Development Authority of the Greater Bluefield Area Inc. bought the former Granada Theater at a public auction on Monday.

Authority member Charlie Cole tells the Bluefield Daily Telegraph that the nonprofit wants to preserve the theater and make it functional again.

He says the authority's board plans to meet with the Bluefield Preservation Society board of directors to discuss possibilities for restoring the building.
