Chain link fence surrounds a sinkhole that swallowed a section of parking lot of the Raleigh Grande movie theater after a faulty underground drainage pipe gave way this summer. Carolina Cinemas hoped the city would fix the hole, since the pipe also drains water from surrounding properties and nearby Hilburn Road. But the city says it’s up to the company, which has now ordered pipe and hopes to make the hole disappear within a month.
