producers just completed a week of shooting in El Paso, Texas.
Footage covered background material for the story on the efforts
to save the Plaza Theatre; the social, political, cultural,
and geographical influences impacting the city's efforts for
revitalization of downtown via the theatre.
Jeff interviewed real estate developer and investor Tanny Berg
who has been very involved in downtown redevelopment projects
over the years. Mr. Berg saved the Palace Theatre from an
uncertain fate. This Interstate theatre was the sister of
the Plaza, located only two blocks away. It is also the theatre
at which Jeff Mills's father worked as a young man.
