Though the building might be changing ownership, the Ridglea Theater, according to owners Wesley and Richard Hathaway, is here to stay. Here’s a note from Wesley sent earlier today:

“As has been the case too many times during the past three years, the landlord and owners of the Ridglea Theater have done it yet again! We found out this morning that the complex is going into foreclosure next month. As far as Richard and I are concerned, the Ridglea Theater itself … is not going to close! We have a lease, and we do not plan on going anywhere until we decide to retire! We appreciate all the offers of doing a benefit from so many of you bands and fans. We deeply appreciate your loyalty over the past 11 and a half years and look forward to seeing you in the future for many great shows!”
