We had to wrap The Skinny this week just after the Tucson City Council meeting ended, so we couldn't get in the rather important fact that Don Martin rejected the proposal that the Rialto Theatre Foundation be allowed to remain in their offices for three months while working out a deal to trade or purchase the property that the developers now own and the theatre is now using.
Martin has informed the foundation that he is proceeding with eviction, but all parties—including Martin, Rialto Theatre Foundation Board President Michael Crawford, City Manager Michael Letcher and others—will be having a big pow-wow today to see if a more reasonable deal can be negotiated. Details to follow as they become available.
