Options downtown

Dear Editor:A cultural movie house in Downey would spare me the hour-drive to Santa Monica to watch a decent movie, one without gratuitious violence, sex or drug use. Downey also needs a nice white-cloth restaurant for older adults. The Chili's and Elephant Bar at Downey Landing are nice, but a restaurant more sophisticated is in order. Whatever the case, the revitalization of downtown is long overdue and I hope our city leaders are sincere in their efforts to better the quality of life in Downey. We also need to resolve the dicey issue of parking. - Patty Smith, Downey ********** Published: January 2, 2009 - Volume 7 - Issue 37
