I added artist’s rendering images of the re-purposed facade, from the sales office window now on Wells Street. Also some photos of the rear of the theatre, coal chute and exits. As this area may not be accessible soon. Trees in a parkway behind it have been cut down, and blue construction fencing has now gone up in front of the theatre as of earlier this week. I’ll get pics of that soon.
