The Duluth Public Works Department has erected a black covering on the construction fence in front of the depression next to the theatre.
Downtown Duluth merchants, shoppers and diners no longer have to look at the unsightly depression next to the Red Clay Theatre on Main Street. The Duluth Public Works Department has erected a black covering on the construction fence that now obscures the view of “The Hole” next to the theatre. The depression was created as the result of excavation required to replace the building’s end wall to stop flooding in the basement. The city is proceeding with plans to build an expansion of the RCT to include a larger pre-function area for the theatre with a bar and new restrooms and a rooftop tavern. Eddie Owen Presents, which stages concerts in the city-owned music venue, intends to operate the tavern.

The Duluth Downtown Development Authority voted Tuesday (March 19) to authorize Eddie Owen to use $25,000 in funds donated by the Duluth Fall Festival to start building out the basement of the Red Clay Theatre for a music school. Owen manages the city-owned music venue and presents regular live music concerts. The DFF funds are deposited in the DDA’s bank account.
