Fancy News - Signs of Life at the old movie theater building!

It's true, a crane was observed working along the side of the burned-out hulk of the old movie theater here in Springfield, Vermont, Official Home of the Simpsons. The surviving bits of original gingerbread trim that once graced the cornice of this victorian building were left to rot in the snow on the sidewalk, instead of being housed (anywhere) out of the weather - this a real reminder of the lack of interest in conservation. However, something is finally being done to fix or repair this once handsome building!
