The theater, a fixture on Solano since 1925, would be remodeled from a 1,000-seat venue (now divided into two 500-seat movie theaters) to a 500-seat theater, with a large stage able to support live performances. At this point, the project is in an exploratory stage. Other theater companies are involved in initial talks, but are not ready to talk publicly about participation, Capitelli said, adding that the city may get involved, but that it’s too early to say how. “It’s conceivable that the city might do something with a loan similar to what they did in the Elmwood, if they thought it was a strong enough business plan and had relative certainty that the loan would be paid back,” he said.

Several homes on tour this year belonging to Alamo residents have been transformed to reflect the season and are ready to welcome admirers. Sujatha Jamwal was looking forward to getting her home decorated after recently having it painted. “The views from my home and most homes from Round Hill North are incredible and inspiring. The inside-outside lifestyles throw a different spin on Christmas,” she said. Sharon Keeton has also gotten her home ready for the holidays and the AAUW tour. “Setting the scene for the holidays is a joyful endeavor, and it’s fun to create new tableaux to add to the favorites from seasons past. I don’t think I’m doing any more decorating then I usually do, which is a lot,” she stated.

A bulletin board on the wall was filled with fading Polaroids of customers and a series of trading cards of local police officers. Old school? On the final evening, two women walked in from next door trying to pay for their ice cream cones with a credit card. Cheng couldn’t get the reader to work. The women offered to go find an ATM and come back and pay. Cheng told them to go ahead. Try that at Macy’s. Cheng said he had been musing on retirement for a while, but that once he made his decision, it came quickly. He and Daisy live in Richmond and have two grandchildren who can always use more attention.
