to stay, or not to stay? - the state's façade

I Will Shout Youngstown presents an overview of the possible demolition of the State Theater and what really is behind the historic façade.
"It might be hard to see, but there are whole buildings behind the Davis and Armed Forces Buildings, but very little behind the façade of the State Theater.

Similar to the the set of any theater around the world, the façade is almost like a piece of set design. It's a 1920s advertisement to draw people off the main drag and into the theater."
Design alternatives to tearing down the façade (with pictures) are provided here.
