New theater planned for Fort Collins

FORT COLLINS — The closure of the Midtown Arts Center dinner theater in August has created an opening for a new theater in Fort Collins, and the owner of the Candlelight Dinner Playhouse in Johnstown hopes to fill the gap.

Dave Clark, a Loveland City Council member and owner of the Candlelight, plans to establish an 800-seat theater — not a dinner theater — at Boardwalk and Mason in Fort Collins, according to a report in the Coloradoan.
