Patsy:
The theater was twined by enclosing the mezzanine in 1983. I took a peek in while the demo of the enclosures over the two balconies was taking place a year ago. It’s a spectacular view up to the top. Although work appears to have stalled for now, the theater will be a splendid intimate music venue when restoration is completed.

And when was the decision to TWIN it made?

Just looked at the exterior photo with the marquee and vertical JEFFERSON sign which was there in the 40’s, but not today! I guess the 4 businessmen who bought the theatre and changed the name to THE CINEMA (now that’s creative) decided to make other changes, as well!

In the 1990s the back of the theater (behind the screen) where there is a small stage was used to through raves. Sometimes movies where shown at the same time in the front so you could take a break from dancing.

Below the stage (or still is?) an apartment that had an outside entrance on Water street.
