    City assumes ownership of Queen Theatre

    The City of Bryan now owns the historic Queen Theatre, ensuring it will continue its legacy as an icon in the heart of Historic Downtown Bryan.

    The Bryan City Council unanimously approved the conveyance of the building from the Downtown Bryan Association (DBA) at the Council’s Dec. 8, 2020 meeting. Previously, the DBA unanimously approved the same agreement at their Nov. 5, 2020 meeting.

    Terms of the conveyance include that the city will be responsible for the current mortgage balance and closing costs not to exceed $470,000, and assume the maintenance and upkeep of the building. Although the City of Bryan has no plans to sell the building, DBA would receive the first right of refusal to purchase it in the next five years.

    “The Queen has a rich history as part of Downtown Bryan, and the city’s ownership of the building will ensure it remains a vibrant part of Downtown Bryan and our community,” said Mayor Andrew Nelson.

    The office portions of the building will be occupied by Destination Bryan, the newly established destination marketing organization for the City of Bryan. The city will solidify future plans for the rest of the building in the coming year.
