People were tearing down the marquee of the much-neglected Cine Latino this weekend and now all that remains is a steal frame and some rotted wood. Were they just doing some routine destructive maintenance to get rid of an imminent hazard, or is this the beginning some new development in the space?
We have to ask because just two months or so ago we were hearing multiple rumors that a brewery partnering with Gordon Biersch were looking at opening a brewery at Cine Latino in conjunction with the forthcoming Alamo Drafthouse across the street. All parties denied the rumors, so we let it go. But now someone is suddenly doing work on the place? Even if that specific rumor was wrong, it seems as though something is up.
