New official website is:

Quite a bit of progress – they’ve virtually completed restoration phases I through III, and have completed some parts of Phases 4 and 5. Quite a job too. Some of the pre-restoration photos show the auditorium with the roof, ceiling and part of the auditorium wallks completely gone – looks like a two-level outdoor theatre! But a lot hsa been done since then and their plan calls for complete restoration/recreation of the archictural details.

The Grand theatre was one of many theatres in southern AZ built or operated by the Diamos brothers. It had a Wurlitzer model 135 organ equipped with a roll player. The organ or parts of it are in storage in a Douglas church. Eugene Durfee was the architect for either the Ritz or Liberty theatre in Jerome, AZ also. He got that job because Jerome was also a big mining town and Durfee did work for the mines and was friendly with the Diamos brothers. Don Story
