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:

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:

If you think I might be able to help you with your project, please feel free to email me at I LOVE old theaters, and would love to help bring another one back to life.

Best of luck with your project!
