Seedy Skyway Theater reborn as casual club


With lights flashing, Bar-fly hopes to ignite 7th & Hennepin revival

David Kabanuk's new nightclub Bar-fly is in the ground level of the old Skyway 6 Theatre on Hennepin Avenue -- a movie house that went dark in 1999.

The theatre's marquee will continue to hang outside 711 Hennepin Ave. S., but no films will play inside. Although Kabanuk plans to keep the marquee and considers it an historical icon, he hopes to create a new history for a seedy stretch of Hennepin when Bar-fly opens Thursday.
