Northland's NewsCenter is reporting that the city of Duluth, Minnesota has purchased the historic Norshor Theatre on Superior Street:
Tuesday, Mayor Don Ness announced that [Duluth Economic Development Authority] closed on the purchase of the buildings from Eric Ringsred and said plans are already underway to reestablish the NorShor Theater as an important part of the downtown waterfront district.
“This is a great day for all who love downtown Duluth and who support local art. We have seen tremendous progress in recent years in Old Downtown. A vibrant NorShor will support the private investment that has already happened and will help establish downtown as an arts and entertainment destination,” said Mayor Ness. “Our partnership with the Duluth Playhouse is the key. Their passion for the arts, their expertise in managing a theater, and their positive reputation in the community will help ensure the success of the NorShor."

According to the web site Cinema Treasures, the theater was originally the Orpheum Theatre, which opened in 1910. It was renovated in the Art Deco style in 1941 and renamed the NorShor Theatre. At some point, the movie theater closed and its last use was as a strip club.
