Pantages restoration

posted by Michael Zoldessy on June 9, 2008 at 3:45 pm

VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA — Check out the official website of the Pantages Theatre to see what’s going on with the exciting restoration.

This extraordinary structure, built as a vaudeville house in 1907 and opened on 6 January 1908, enjoys the finest acoustics of any theatre in British Columbia. Closed since 1990, it is now the subject of a major restoration project headed by developer Marc Williams and the non-profit Pantages Theatre Arts Society.

This restoration will recreate the look and ambience of a century-old treasure. It will offer the most modern technologies available in light and sound, in broadcasting and webcasting, in lobbies and galleries, and in multi-use purposes—all within a unique and meticulously restored house, in Canada’s poorest, but culturally richest neighbourhood.

Congrats!
I direct a non-profit organization to promote the arts and culture exchanges within our region in Miami, FL(BRAC).
We have been in desperate need to find classic, not restored theater seats… and well in Florida they are not easy to come by…
If you decide to replace the current seats in the Rialto, please drop me a line, we’ll take them off your hadns and you can make a nice donation:

Sadly, it appears that this project may now be dead…
