Final Cut?

No one wants the Clay Theatre to close, but few are lining up to see movies there either.

With that earned optimism in mind, it seems fair to say that permanent closure of the Clay seems unlikely. As Jaiswal, who belongs to the Fillmore Merchants Association, told the Chronicle in September, "A boarded-up theater is horrible for the street." Although he is reportedly dissatisfied with the compromises by which that fate has so far been averted, his actions do suggest awareness, however begrudging, that a low-paying tenant still is better than none.
