  • The Village Arcade sign was a nod to the Village Theatre marquee, which was promptly razed in January of the year after a Jim McConn-administration moratorium on demolition of historic structures expired. (1990 maybe? Sometime around then.) There was, actually, some effort to save the Village Theatre and its block of shops (incl. World Toy and Gift) but it came to naught. It was a nice MacKie & Kamrath neighborhood theatre design but by the time of its demise it was probably irretrievably tainted by its waning days as a porn house.
