Boyd Theatre restoration photos! (before work ceased)
PHILADELPHIA, PA — Before preliminary renovations ceased, Clear Channel and successor owner Live Nation beautifully restored a section of the auditorium of the historic Boyd Theatre.
This work was done after a Paint Study was done to determine the original 1928 Art Deco design. These photos depict some of the work that was designed to restore the Boyd Theatre to its original Art Deco splendor. Fully restored, the Boyd would be one of the most dazzling theaters in the US.
Friends of the Boyd continue to volunteer to get the project back on track, with a new owner and restoration funding.
