Star Plaza Theatre President Charlie Blum told The Times of Northwest Indiana the decision to preserve the theater was made because of an outpouring of community support. White Lodging Services Corp. announced in August it would demolish the theater as part of a project to build a new adjoining Radisson hotel.
