An 83-year-old Christchurch theatre demolished after the February 22 earthquake appears unlikely to get Christchurch Earthquake Mayoral Relief funding.
The Repertory Theatre in Kilmore St survived the September 2010 quake but was not so lucky last February.
The theatre trust has applied for a $3.25 million grant from the relief fund to allow it to rebuild.
However, council staff are recommending councillors decline the application at their Thursday meeting.
