As far as the “second auditorium” goes, I’ve never heard of it.

The 2009 interior photos of the Shubert theatre are for the Minneapolis Shubert, not the St. Paul Shubert (now the Fitzgerald). The Fitzgerald was fully restored years old.
The Minneapolis Shubert is awaiting restoration.

Looking at the aerial view found on google maps, it looks as if there might be another auditorium atop the six story office structure that houses the Fitzgerald Theatre lobby. Is this assumption correct?

Just saw “Prairie”. The BEST part were the shots of “The Fitzgerald” According to David Naylor’s “Great American Movie Theatres”…… The Architects were Marshall and Fox.

Yes. Just came back from seeing it. The mighty Wurlitzer is beautiful, they showed it in a scene. The movie didn’t show a great facade of the theatre whatsoever which is what I was waiting for, however there are other great shots of the various rooms, but no great big shots. It makes it seem cozy during the movie. There is a bust of F. Scott Fitzgerald in the luxury box.

No one seems to have mentioned yet that this is where, appropriately, the current Robert Altman movie A Prairie Home Companion was filmed.

Glad to read that Ben is now at rest and that the theatre lives on today! When Brian broadcast the Nightly News from the Fitzgerald I just had to find out what theatre and where so wrote NBC and got my answer within a few days! :–)

Yes this is the theater that Brian Williams did NBC Nightly News.
No he did not, Ben we think finally crossed over, as no one has had any contact or sightings with him in a couple of years.

This is the theatre that Brian Williams broadcast the NBC Nightly News from a few weeks ago! I wonder if Brian saw Ben, the ghost!?!
