Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

There's been rumors swirling for the past two or three months regarding the Oriental Theater, the most intriguing (and viable) of which being that the owners of 3 Kings Tavern, Jeff Campbell, Jim Norris and Marty Kilorin, were in the process of negotiating the purchase of the theater. While we received confirmation from the trio a while back that they were indeed interested and actively working to acquire the theater, they opted not to discuss specifics until the deal was finalized. Well, the deal has since been finalized and tomorrow afternoon, we'll be posting an inclusive interview with Jeff Campbell, in which he'll detail the partner's plans for the historic venue.
