Big investments planned for Lerner

The Lerner Theatre in downtown Elkhart opened to a full house in 2011 after its renovation. But time has taken its toll, the general manager said, and so the 2020 Lerner budget could see a 34 percent increase from 2019.Truth file photo 

ELKHART — The Lerner Theatre’s annual deficit is expected to almost triple in 2020 compared to what was planned for 2019 as the city makes additional investments in the historic downtown showpiece. 

According to the proposed budget, the theater is expected to cost the city $863,000 in 2020, whereas a loss of $292,000 was budgeted for 2019.
