The ornate Five Points/Riverside Theatre is slated to reopen in early 2012 as a cinema drafhouse. The current owners are in the process of restoring many of the decorative features which were either loss or build over during its stint as a nightclub. The Five Points is a jaw dropping beauty and one of the few mid-size movie places still intact.
