Guild Theatre in Menlo Park to reopen March 11

Theater on El Camino has been closed due to water damage

The water damage to the Guild Theatre at 949 El Camino Real in Menlo Park should be repaired by March 10, with the theater scheduled to reopen on Friday, March 11, according to Michael Fant, vice president for real estate development for Landmark Theatres, in a phone interview from Oakland Airport.

Fant was flying back to Los Angeles after meeting with a contractor at the theater.

During a storm in mid-February, rain penetrated the roof above the upstairs mechanical room, leaked on to the heating and air-conditioning system, and continued down into the lobby, where it damaged the ceiling, walls, floor and an electrical panel, Fant said.

Landmark has leased the Guild for at least 10 years, he added. Landmark is the largest exhibitor of art and independent films in the world, Fant said.
