An empty theater in the Uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis will likely be future retail store, the Star Tribune reports.

The city's Heritage Preservation Commission will review plans to restore and renovate the 86-year-old Suburban World Theater, originally known as the Granada Theater.

The following item is on the commission's agenda for early June:

Renovation and Partial Restoration of Granada Theater. The project proposes to renovate the Granada Theater into a retail store and would include restoration of the exterior, removal of the kitchen area, restoration of the existing theater space walls and perimeter circulation, and introduction of a flat floor to facilitate retail store experience and center entry to the theater for visual connectedness.

The historic landmark has sat dormant for about a year, according to the newspaper.
