The Bal Can be Yours - For $750,000

San Leandro's historic Bal Theatre is for sale at a list price of $750,000. The Bal, as you may recall, re-opened with great promise in August 2000. After the city revoked the theatre's permit in 2001, the theatre hasn't seen much use. It's currently part of a the NAZ8 chain of theatres and screens films from South Asia, Iran, China, Taiwan, Korea and the Philippines.

The Bal doesn't have much of any off-street parking, which means that the City of San Leandro greatly restricts its use. This makes the property unattractive to potential buyers who might want to show movies or stage live performances in the theatre.
