Anyone know if the LCM will be open
Considering there is no staff as they were all laid off and have now
all found other jobs, I'd guess that's a hard no. They'd basically
need to spin up from 0 again -- considering Vulcan shut down LCM,
Cinerama and the Flying Heritage Museum as soon as they could after
Paul's death -- I put my money on asset dispersal, rather than
I say with a pit in my stomach as a former member and regular visitor.
EMP (or whatever the hell they're called now) survived because they had
been spun off as a separate legal entity from Paul's Vulcan empire.
It also includes Seattle Art Fair, which is a big deal in Seattle.
It is more like Jody (Paul Allen's sister who runs Vulcan now) took
advantage of the pandemic to shut Vulcan Entertainment down.
However, it looks like they may be trying to re-form it as a charitable
organization, Vulcan Arts & Entertainment, similar to what happened with
EMP/MoPOP. They have a fancy new website (https://vulcanae.com
) and are
soliciting interest in memberships, donating, and volunteering.
