At around 6 million pounds, the theater was the heaviest building ever moved on rubber wheels; here is the Guinness Record.

Jim Lileks insightful take on the Shubert’s history.

This building is noteworthy in Minneapolis, since it has actually been moved from its original location during the summer of 1999. The largest building ever moved at 29,000 tons, this theater now sits on Hennepin Avenue, just down the street from the State and the Orpheum, waiting for renovation.
