Here’s a look at some local news brought to you by Silver City Radio.

According to a news release from the Town of Silver City, management of the Silco Theater in historic Downtown Silver City will soon return to Silver City Mainstreet to take on the day-to-day operations. “Charmeine Wait, executive director of Silver City Mainstreet, stated that current managers Bob Grunstein and Joe Navan of Silco Revival LLC decided not to renew the lease, at least in part to major shifts in the movie theater business, namely online streaming and the COVID pandemic’s impact on ticket sales.” New uses for the property have been discussed, including a performance stage with a moveable screen. For now, first and second-run films will continue to be shown at least part of the week. In addition, Mainstreet will be hiring a part-time cultural coordinator to identify, book and coordinate artists and events for the Silco, along with a part-time projectionist and a concession salesperson. The Silco will be vacated by current management by September 30th.
