I read some posts wanting to see interior photos of the Tivoli. I have the next best thing. If you go to www.washingtoncentral.org and click on “theater brochure” you can see old interior shots of the Washington Theater in Quincy, IL which was a near twin to the Tivoli. I had peeked through the windows of the Tivoli before it was razed. The lobby of the Washington looked quite similar, though it was a one-story vs. the Tivoli’s soaring two-story lobby. And judging from a photo of the Tivoli’s auditorium, I think the Washington’s was quite similar as well.
The Washington Theater in Quincy, Illinois is a near mirror-image twin to the Tivoli, designed by the same architect E.P. Rupert. The website for the Washington is www.washingtoncentral.org
