WEST CHESTER, Pa. – Bam Margera has been on screen plenty of times. Now he wants to own one.
The professional skateboarder, prankster and MTV star is teaming with a business partner to open a theater in his hometown of West Chester.
The theater, so far unnamed, will feature musical acts, standup comedians and films. Construction is under way for a projected opening in the spring.
"This is the real deal," said Margera, 28. "I just want to own a piece of West Chester."
Margera has used the quaint town outside Philadelphia as a backdrop for episodes of MTV's "Jackass" and "Viva La Bam."
