Fremont Theatre’s future up for grabs as half-owner’s interest goes to auction

Prominent local developer John King’s 50 percent share in the historic Fremont Theatre and adjacent property that housed Mission Cinemas will go up for auction in Los Angeles on May 16, 2017, after he lost a lawsuit from a former lender claiming he owed $11.5 million. But his partner Rob Rossi said he hopes to emerge as the winning bidder — and continue operating the art deco-styled theater on Monterey Street in downtown San Luis Obispo as a successful music venue.
