NBC TV’s Dateline news magazine show recently featured a short piece in its Postcard from the Field on the revival of Wilmington’s Queen.
As noted in the segment, the inside of the theater was in ruins before a revival of the city landmark on the lower Market Street (LOMA) district.
Concert promoter Live Nation now operates the theater, with the Light up the Queen Foundation also involved.
Philadelphia-based World Cafe Live managed the venue for several years, prior to the arrival of Live Nation. The organization’s theater in Philadelphia remains in operation.
