"The Embassy Theatre Foundation on Tuesday announced the $1.85 million walkway project will be named in memory of Robert Goldstine. The Robert Goldstine Foundation donated $550,000 to the project."


"The foundation’s grant money will help pay for a new elevator connecting the basement to the seventh floor on the west side of the Embassy building and a new stairwell and elevator shaft on the east side. Embassy officials hope these amenities will make investors more interested in developing the building’s upper floors.

According to the Embassy, Goldstine led community efforts in the 1970s to save the theater from demolition, and he spearheaded the formation of the Embassy as a non-profit organization."
