Take a closer look into one of the Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI) projects that will be submitted the NY State for approval and funding, the Capitol Theatre-
The Capitol Theatre is a 1,788-seat auditorium opened in 1928 that is used for live stage performances and movie screenings. The theater has a 20’x40’ movie screen, shows movies with carbon arc film projection (and also has digital capabilities), shows silent movies with live theater organ accompaniment, and has a full pit for live orchestras to accompany stage performances. In 2014, the Cinema Capitol was opened next door to the Capitol Theatre, with two smaller theaters, seating 51 and 73 people. The Cinema is open 365 days per year to showcase independent, foreign, and documentary films, as well as special events.
The project entails improvements to the existing Capitol Theatre to advance restoration of the historic theater to the period of its most recent renovation, circa 1939, and improve the primary building electrical, mechanical, and plumbing systems. DRI funds will be used for replacement of the front entry doors, other storefronts, and other façade restorations, purchase and installation of a new marquee sign to match one from the original installation, seating restoration, and other decorative restorations. Additionally, separate fund raising will be generated to improve landscaping around the theater, improve the electronics systems in the theater, purchase furniture, and renovate the back building (owned by the Capitol Theatre) to create a black box studio for rehearsals, performances, and community/private events. ...

This is long overdue, I'm so glad to see it finally happen!
This is a great project. They are so deserving.
I don't live in Rome anymore but I'm glad to see Rome progress like this!
The heating is a problem always cold there
Awesome project! Let the community know if you need volunteers to help out. Rome has a strong base of community spirit! Sign me up!
This looks so awesome! Can’t wait to see how everything turns out! Go Rome!
If they never tore it all down to build the useless non historically accurate Fort Rome would still have a beautiful downtown. What town do you go to where there is no centralized shopping or dining with as big of a population? Seriously cut Ft. Stanwix funding and pour that money where it will create jobs and revenue and people might stay or even move to Rome for longer than a contract at EADS or contracts on the base.

Take a closer look into one of the Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI) projects that will be submitted to NY State for approval and funding-
The proposed project would include design and construction of a new CENTRO Transfer Station and surrounding site improvements adjacent to City Hall parking lot on Liberty Street. The new transfer station will provide new services that promote sustainability through mass transit, bike commuting and pedestrian connectivity with the pedestrian oriented downtown.
Specific elements of the project include:
• Development of a +/- 360 square foot building along Liberty Street, including a shelter location with space for people waiting for buses, and ticket kiosk. Materials would include a glass storefront for high visibility, architectural metal building envelope and masonry lower walls to protect the structure against snow and water damage.
• Landscape improvements along N. Washington and Liberty Street to create a more attractive streetscape environment. ... See MoreSee Less
Heat and air conditioning? Seating? Bathrooms? Employees to tend to the building? So many questions.
Why don't they just put the new bus station on where the old one was? I mean after they tear the garage down? It would keep the busses off of the street. In turn keeping the bus riders safer while getting on and off of the bus. And they could make a big enough building for everyone waiting for the bus.
...are buses going to pull into the parking lot or congest the roadway?
There will be a DRI Public Briefing on Thursday, March 22nd.
It would neat if we could get the ticket kiosks that have people do squats for free rides or be able to pay with returnable bottles.
How many millions of taxpayer dollars are they gonna blow on this one? 😮
Are there any “artist renderings of the South James st project?
My question is where is the actual bus garage gonna go? The workers have to have a place to be able to use the restroom and take breaks. I feel so bad for them right now.
What about restrooms. You'll have to run to cityhall.
If you have questions regarding this project please attend the DRI Public Briefing on Thursday, March 22nd at 6PM.
I like that you are throwing the idea for the public to see. Hopefully anyone who is critizing can give their own ideas
Glad to see Rome’s plan for this grant , good to see upgrading and making city hall area look decent , can’t wait to see the finished product
Just something else that the salt and snow will destroy
Build it up tear it down rome is a great place to live...
After the parking garage is torn down something like this should be put on that site.
Why dont cento build their own terminal
Unless I'm missing something, I can't inagine waiting for a bus in weather like last week. Warmth? Cool? Bathrooms? Place to sit?
My only question to this is if I'm looking at it correctly... If it is facing liberty st. Wont it created same "cluster hunk " issue that is at w Dominick now but instead of DMV and sentinel and social services it will be inconveniencing people that need to go to city hall or better yet bring their young children to the doctors office. You can't tell me people won't be parking in the city hall parking lot and trust me... When we bring our own children 11,14 and 17 to that doctors office sometimes we have to park across the street due to not enough parking. Also if bus is parked directly in front of city hall on w liberty st... Cars will be in same predicament they currently are in at george intersection and Dominick w bus stops. People will know have to go around bus to park to bring sick kids in and sometimes..more often more than likely park across the street due to people using the bus and parking their car in city hall parking lot. Just my opinion.
That’s nice for people taking the bus . I’d like to see something for people driving into Rome ,incentive to shop there
This is a mess. People are gonna get hit. There is so much traffic over there. People constantly pulling in and out in that parking lot.
My concern would be visibility. Being able to see if the is traffic coming from the left when pulling out of the city hall parking lot.
Its certainly an improvement over that mess on Dominic st. Thats an accident waiting to happen.
Centro should build there own terminal unless they are willing to lower fares I'm sure that they receive money from state federal or local government I fell Rome NY is a lost cause ad has been for decades to many greased palms let's bring in professional leadership and get things fixed
