The city's Building Code Committee recommended giving the Des Plaines Theater six months to make needed improvements, the Journal and Topics newspaper reported.
The Des Plaines Theater, 1476 Miner St., was renovated and held a grand opening Nov. 11, 2011. Over the course of a year dozens of volunteers have worked on restoring the theater.
The City Council will vote on whether to grant the six month extenstion for the code compliance at its Jan. 21 meeting, however, the manager of the theater told the Building Code Committee that six months would not be enough time, the Journal and Topics reported.
As Patch previously reported, the original compliance date for some of the repairs was Dec. 15. A fire curtain, the boiler room and the furnace room were among the issues.
