Are you listening, Mr. David Packard? You have already converted the movie house in San Jose into a Performing Arts Center for the Silicon Valley Symphony. Couldn't you allow those many weeks when the Stanford Theatre is dark and not showing classic films to be used for Stanford Lively Arts performances? Folks could have dinner and a show without trying to drive Stanford's serpentine roads trying to find a place to park. Residents of Downtown could walk over to hear the St. Laurence String Quartet or Itzak Perlman and Yo-Yo Ma performs duets. Imagine!
Talk about a classy downtown. Parking garages already built. Some programs on weeknights. It even has the Stanford marquee and Mr. David Packard's Stanford connections. Please!
