Beginning in early June 2019, workers began gutting the theater lobby and two other storefronts to create a much bigger lobby. They also began demolition in the basement for the addition of modern restrooms and beginning excavating for an elevator shaft. The $4.2 million construction budget includes new plumbing, electrical and HVAC systems in the renovated areas and is scheduled to conclude by February 2020. This page is devoted to ongoing updates from the work.
