Does the BBC have something to report?

The BBC have recently published an article on the Odeon - which tells us close to nothing - though it presumably derives from a press release from the Theatres Trust which I can't find at the moment.

Here is the link but the report is so short (and uninformative) I can replicate it even in this short post.
"Three Scottish theatres at risk of closure, demolition or redevelopment have been saved.
The advisory body, the Theatres Trust, said the Britannia Panopticon in Glasgow, Edinburgh's New Victoria/Odeon and the Leith Theatre now have a secure future.
But two others, the Tivoli Theatre in Aberdeen and Glasgow's Old Athenaeum are still thought to be under threat.
Both are Grade I listed, but are empty and said to be at risk of development."
 
Clearly I have missed something.  My last post on the Odeon reported the situation last month.

And what does it mean with the words 'at risk of. . .  development'?   Sometimes development is the means of saving a building.  A bit revealing, that language.

And a short post on developments at the Queen's Hall to follow.
