Washington Theater to get face lift & conversion to lofts
BELLEVILLE, IL — Plans are in motion to restore the front of the Washington Theater and at least convert some of it to lofts.
Hillesheim said she hopes to be able to make loft space in the taller part of the theater building known as the fly space, where scenery and other items could be raised out of the way of the stage.
Work on the facade is at a halt at the moment because Hillesheim has to apply for downtown facade improvement grants and plan out what is to be done and how to do it.
