‘We are not going to stop’: Bergen County puts historic theater up for auction

Williams Center for the Arts, a historic theater in Rutherford, is hitting the market.
Bergen County, which owns the theater, is putting the theater up for auction. Cinema director Shawn Stutler says efforts are being made to make sure the theater is preserved.
"The Williams Center Board of Trustees has been trying to find a solution to the financial issues surrounding the Williams Center for quite some time,” says Stutler. “We've made incredible strides. Since the announcement of the auction, we have been working diligently to find developers, find interested parties, work with charities and work with other people who are interested in preserving this place. We are not going to stop until they bring the jackhammers out."
Stutler says despite dealing with some struggles as of late, the theater still has a lot of potential.
