Des Moines Register: The building that houses the former Ingersoll theater at 3711 Ingersoll Ave. is at a crossroads. A potential buyer has emerged that wants to restore the theater as a performance space. Yet when Des Moines permit and development staff recently toured the 83-year-old building at the potential buyer's invitation, they found several holes in the roof and interior water damage from rain and snow. The staff now will seek a formal inspection to determine whether the building remains structurally sound.
