The historic NorShor Theatre in the heart of downtown Duluth has been shut down because it has not been made accessible to people with disabilities.
Accessibility regulations required by the Americans with Disabilities Act are not in place, and now that the city of Duluth bought the theater, officials have canceled events until the fixes are made, says the Northland News Center.
Says the story:
There are no bathrooms on the ground floor and no elevator.
A team of experts is developing a plan to bring the facility into compliance but until those accessibility requirements are met the ruling is that the city can have no events inside.
In the meantime, the Duluth Playhouse, which is managing the facility for the city, has canceled its Rock and Roll Fundraiser on Saturday.
