OWOSSO, MI — On Wednesday, October 24, a crane was used to remove the last remaining twisted beams over the balcony of the fire damaged and partially demolished Lebowsky Center. The Owosso Commmunity Players, which own the theater, plans to have the theater enclosed with re-constructed east, north and west walls, then a new roof. After that, interior work will be done as money allows. The work is being done by Sascon Construction of Owosso.

Looks like the fire-proof nitrate era projection booth is relatively intact.

It looks like that’s the only thing intact! Or are there still seats left? Original carpet? Must all be destroyed by the water from hosing down the fire I take it. What a shame.

About 200 seats under the balcony survived the fire. You can see a tour of the fire damage at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gju6f8e_D1M
