YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Foster’s Art Theater on Glenwood Avenue is on one local entrepreneur’s list of places to flip.

John Watkins would like to flip the adult entertainment theater into a concert venue.

The building has been around since the 1930s and has a seating capacity for over 500 people.

Watkins said it would be the perfect concert venue to place on the city’s south side.

“I know downtown has the Amphitheater and the Covelli Centre, but I want to do something like in the middle and heart where I grew up,” he said.

Watkins is getting the building inspected next week and said his plans will then go from there.
