I'm a little confused at the term "preserved" being used here. As someone who has been in the Hillside basement, I've seen firsthand the kind of water intrusion that they hope to resolve. But I'm not sure adding an artist's "green room" and bathrooms to the basement is part of "preservation". It seems that the goal of TPI is to increase traffic to the theater, but what is next - removing corn fields to make room for more parking?
