The Renovation Project

Preserving the Past & Welcoming the Future.

Typical of buildings of its era with three quarters of a century of use and deterioration, the theatre no longer meets the demands of a 21st century presentation facility, either in comfort, code compliance or technical capabilities.  This renovation will help resolve these issues.

The basic intent of the project is to preserve the character and charm of the theatre while upgrading the facility to current life safety needs, code compliance and ADA accessible conformity.
