DANBURY, Conn. — The City of Danbury has purchased a downtown landmark — the Tuxedo Junction building — for $395,000, according to WLAD-AM.

The one-story building with 7,000 square feet of space will be turned into a community theater, WLAD said.

Mayor Mark Boughton said he believes renovations can be done quickly and inexpensively to set up the building to provide a first-class venue for concerts and shows, WLAD said. The purchase does not include the adjoining bar.

The Tree House Comedy Club has asked about renting the space for 50 nights a year, and inquiries have also been made by the Richter Park Musicals and the Danbury Music Centre, the story said.

The nightclub was closed after its operator, 21-year-old Ian Bick, was sentenced last fall to three years in prison for defrauding his investors through a Ponzi scheme.
