Poll Results: Readers Want Theater in Deerfield

Patch readers expressed strong support for a temporary relocation of Highland Park’s Landmark Theater during a three-month renovation to Deerbrook’s shuttered movie house.

Of the 36 readers who responded, 29 want to see the temporary move while seven are opposed, according to an unscientific survey started Feb. 18.

Earlier: Should Deerbrook’s Theaters Become Landmark’s Temporary Home

Management from Deerbrook has yet to respond to Patch about the suggestion while a spokesperson for Landmark was not able to offer any further information. Meanwhile some readers expressed skepticism about the plan.

“If the theatre in downtown HP is a fire hazard and has been open as recently as last year, how will the Deerbrook theatre be ready and able to be a temporary home?” Steve writes. “Personally I still believe that the HP Theatre that is closed should be renovated and reopened for multi use.”

Carol likes the thought and believes it will be good for Deerbrook. “It would be nice to have a movie theater back in Deerfield,” She writes. “It might help to renew interest in the mall.
