Hollywood Theater is ready and waiting for the right owner to restore its lustre


© 2012 Mary Treacy. Published May 27, 2012 in Twin Cities Daily Planet, used with permission.

Ask any Northeaster of a certain age and you’ll hear a story—a first date, the lush décor, the classic movie featuring the glamorous stars of another day. Ask a 21st century newcomer and you’ll hear a story of a rundown eyesore covered with tattered placards.  Ask a preservationist and you’ll learn just why the Hollywood is an architectural treasure of historic import.  There are clear differences of memory—and opinion—surrounding the Hollywood Theater, 2815 Johnson Northeast in Minneapolis.

Johnstock Celebrates 10 years on June 1 & 2

Captain Jack Parrot

For the past nine years Johnstock has shared the weekend with Art-A-Whirl, Northeast's annual artist studio tour. In its tenth year, Johnstock and the Johnson Street Merchants have decided to break from Art-A-Whirl weekend and have its very own annual community festival.

Switching the date has enabled the community surrounding this little main street to be more involved. More vendors are also participating so Johnstock will be twice as big this year!
