Updated 4:45: Auckland's iconic St James Theatre may be a step closer to re-opening.
The St James Theatre complex is to be redeveloped, with a high-rise apartment building on part of the site but with the developers looking to save and restore the St James Theatre.
The theatre was sold to the Lee family on Friday.
Dylan Moran reports the family has appointed a company to look into developing the theatre and restoring it to its former glory.
"That does come with a trade off though.
"They will be building a 307 room apartment building on the site as well, and there have been no guarantees that they will actually reopen the theatre, just that they'll look into it."
