    :: January 29, 2013

    This hypothetical TV program explores America's treasured but derelict buildings, and offers creative solutions for restoring the buildings all the while exposing whether the historic building is worth the effort. Mixing heartfelt history with hard economics this voyeur's journey could end with loss, uncertainty or salvation. Written/produced/directed by Grace McPhillips. Editing by Elizabeth Theiss & Grace McPhillips. Graphics by Protokulture, music by Corbett Lunsford.

    How much does it cost to keep open an historical theater? What can be done to keep it open and what are the alternatives other than abandonement in the future? Check out this great video on the cost of history.
