Saw Funny Girl there as a member of a farming town choir ‘reward’.

Recall the curtains were very gilded; the screen was big and leaned back, as I guess the projector was upstairs.

It was all very close; unlike the Sound of Music at the Down town Mann; or anything I saw later in the big houses.

I just moved into a home in Baden, Pennsylvania. In the old home, we opened a wall and the last thing to fall from the ceiling was a ticket from 1927 which read “Shubert Alvin Theatre. Could this be the same thing?

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

An article and some facts from the Star Tribune.

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.
