Auditorium floor has been repaired (old electric removed, holes filled in) and is now being repainted in the original color (called “movie theater red,” believe it or not) all in preparation for the seat installation to start on April 19. Also, the mirrors in the faux balconies that flank the organ chambers, that were painted over circa 1950s have been stripped and now are restored to their 1928/1939 splendor. (Those very uncosmetic speaker wires will be rerouted before the reopening, now tentatively scheduled for July 17. For more on the restoration, click here for comments from Capitol Arts Complex Development Director Kylie Pirce)
