PI Update: Is Motion Reopening?
CLICK ON PHOTOS TO ENLARGE
Fresh photos taken of the inside of Motion shows that all those banquet tables & chairs that I posted in my 4/3/10 article have been removed, the dance floor is clear and the famous DJ booth (with equipment) has been placed center stage! Is Motion going to reopen?
Last year this week you'll recall that Motion was rented for a private party featuring DJ Manny Lehman, tied-in with Gay Days. See the 6/7/09 article for event photos. But as far as I know, no PI clubs are available anymore for private rentals and I've seen no mention of any Gay Days or other events at the closed club. So are they gearing up to reopen Motion?
I am scouring my PI sources to see what I can find out. The only information gathered so far is that they had a pirate-themed convention in there a few days ago. But no info about whether the current set-up is related to that convention or whether it means something more. I wouldn't get my hopes up but reopening Motion would be huge in terms of PI fan morale and revenue to Disney. The club looks ready to go!! Can you imagine the crowds Motion would draw!
