The Urban Renewal Agency meeting will follow the regular city council meeting that begins at 7 p.m. Tuesday. Government offices are closed for Veterans Day Monday.

Dave Faires and Nathan Heath of central California propose to open a microbrewery at 625 Chetco Ave., in the basement of 625 Wine and Tap Room, that replaced MoVino’s this summer. Tight Line Brewery hopes to start small and expand over a period of years.

Region’s sole drive-in to close early this year

CRESCENT CITY – A sharp decrease in business this summer is prompting the local drive-in theater to close for the season earlier than normal while its owners pursue its possible sale.

Bill Thomas, whose family has owned and operated Red’s Crescent Drive-In since 1980, said the family has discussed selling the drive-in for about two years due to a gradual decline in business. At the beginning of this year, he said, he spoke to Crescent City real estate agent Donna Zorn, telling her he was looking for someone to purchase the theater. In the meantime, the drive-in will close at the end of September, Thomas said.
