Not a great time to pave

Editor:
When Alameda County began lifting restrictions during the COVID-19 shelter-in-place, the Alameda Theatre & Cineplex began showing movies at Corica Park. With the city’s approval theater management took on a considerable financial burden to prepare the parking lot for showing films.

Despite the success of the Drive-In Theatre, the city changed its mind and decided to pave the parking lot. Alameda has a movie theater that attracts business to Park Street. The theater’s owner is attempting to keep his business financially viable by offering this Drive In Theatre at Corica Park.

This paving project will take two months and will be finished just in time for the rainy season.
