The movement to put the city owned theater's expense on the chopping block is supported by Mayor Tomás Regalado who says they can longer afford to support it.
One-third of the Gusman's $1.4 million operating budget comes from the city while the remaining funds come from the non-profit support group called Friends of Gusman, Miami-Dade County and the state, according to CBS4 news partners The Miami Herald. Regalado says the theater should find someone else to fill the $478,000 gap.
Located at 174 East Flagler Street the historic theater, built in 1926, recently underwent years of restoration work that cost taxpayers $8 million and has hosted a wide array of entertainment from concerts to the Miami International Film Festival.
Regalado said he plans to instruct City Manager Carlos Migoya to "zero out" the theater from the annual budget. Migoya says at this point no budget decisions have been made and he had not yet analyzed Gusman's figures.
