Dentist and Ohioans buy historic Wheeling music hall
(2007-08-02)
(WOUB) - A Wheeling, West Virginia, landmark has been sold to a local dentist and a couple from nearby Bellaire, Ohio.

Dr. Manny Velez says he and partners Theresa and Jim Childers have signed an agreement to purchase the Capitol Music Hall. Velez vows it will reopen by October.

California based promotion company Live Nation closed the theater in May because of costly fire code violations.

A real estate agent Carl Nix has said Live Nation was seeking $850,000 for the theater. Velez says he and his partners aren't paying that much, but he won't say what the purchase price is.
