SALISBURY, Md. (WBOC) - Crews begin tearing down a Salisbury landmark. Demolition on the Boulevard Theatre began Friday and continued Saturday morning.

The theatre opened in 1948, but the building is now past its prime.

Inside the building, part of the floor is caved in and a leaky roof years ago spelled the end for the building .

Owner David Moore says demolition should take two to three days.

"It will probably be offered up as a commercial lot initially. But there's kind of a sketch plan that developed for a five story 10,000 square foot commercial building," Moore says.

On Friday, crews removed artifacts such as the theatre's original chairs and its art deco glass blocks. Those items will be auctioned off at a later date.
