Friday’s press conference was an unqualified success for the effort to save Proctor’s. The committee spoke for about 45 minutes in front of an audience of reporters, photographers, and local residents in order to bring their message to all of the citizens of Troy.
The committee was finally able to dispel misinformation about Proctor’s and make the public aware of its main points that: a) Proctor’s Theatre is structurally sound and feasibly renovatable; b) Financing is available to support the restoration effort; and c) There is a viable business plan for operating Proctor’s once it is restored.
The event also resulted in favorable articles being published in the Troy Record, the Times Union, and the Business Review. Links to these articles can be found under “Media> Proctor’s In The News” from our homepage.
