Today, there's an article in the Albany Business Review about Galvan's plans for the old Community Theater: "$15 million investment would restore downtown Hudson theater." The reporter seems to have a less than accurate grasp of Hudson geography. Few Hudsonians would describe the location of the old movie theater as "downtown." Also, its proximity to the two apartment buildings Galvan has proposed is exaggerated: "The building is just four blocks from where the nonprofit foundation has the funding and municipal approvals for a $40 million mixed-income housing and commercial development it's calling the Depot District."
You can imagine why this is particularly important to us given that the Depot District is right up the street.…We have gotten an incredible response from the community. It's hard to remember a project so favorably received. A lot of people have memories of going to movie screenings there and other events.
