PRINCETON — Local volunteers looking to revitalize Mercer Street have signed a purchase option agreement with Jesus Victory Crusades for the former Levon Theater.

Greg Puckett, a member of the Princeton Renaissance Project, said the plan is to turn the theater into a place to show first-run movies and host local activities. Approximately $80,000 must be raised within six months. A series of concerts, shows and movies will be offered not only to raise money, but to showcase the possibilities of having a thriving downtown.
