Hello! I know it has been a few months since you posted this announcement, but this is the first time I’ve seen it, and so I wondered if you were still looking for help restoring your theater.
I am an interior designer based in Portland, Oregon. Earlier this year, I led the restoration of the Academy Theater, a late 1940s Streamline Moderne gem. I also guided the restoration of the exterior facade of the theater and its marquee. A lovely photo of the new marquee is posted on the Academy’s web site at: http://www.academytheaterpdx.com/history.html
Photos of the refurbished theater are posted on my web site at View link as are a few of the many pieces of media coverage we received when the theater first opened: http://www.localcolorstudio.com/media.htm
