On this episode of Resounds, hosts Corby Skinner and Anna Paige discuss the history of the Babcock Theater and its bright future with Matt Blakslee, executive director of Art House Billings, who recently inked a deal with the city of Billings to lease the property under the nonprofit Art House Cinema, and Kim Olsen of 02 Architects, one of four owners of the Babcock building who formed the Babcock LLC and entered into an agreement with the city of Billings to purchase and restore the building and—after a negotiated period of time and a punch list of accomplishments—transfer ownership of the theater to the city.
