"What are the business and operating plans for a DPAC? Real numbers, not happy talk, that show sustainability over time. What anchor tenants might keep it lit, night after night?"

Currently, there are no such plans. Anchor tenants is code for big box retailers.


"And, will local arts groups be able to afford to use this thing? An expensive facility might be costly to book -- what provisions, if any, will be made on that front?"

Sure, if they can afford thousands of dollars per show. Provisions? Only 1 option exists: letting 3rd parties pay the bill. I bet you can guess who the 3rd parties might be.

Ed Wolverton of DGI said on Monday that local arts groups would be granted discounted pricing without stating (or being asked) exactly what that pricing would be.

The cost of opening the doors to a place like the one proposed would likely be out of reach for a local arts group.

"Anchor tenants is code for big box retailers."

Not in this context, Billy. An "anchor tenant" for a PAC would be a performing arts company -- theater, symphony, orchestra, dance, etc.

Billy Jones

Isn't the Greensboro Symphony Orchestra already filling that slot? Or are the PACers planning to ditch them just like they're planning to ditch the Carolina Theater?

Patrick Eakes

Billy, can you tell me more about the plans of those involved with the GPAC plan to ditch the Carolina Theatre?
