Wish the interior had been kept original as it would be quite an original landmark now in 2011.

Time for another name change: It’s now The Don & Ann Brown Theatre, new home of Palm Beach Dramaworks, with another round of extensive renovations. Substantial coverage at http://www.palmbeachdramaworks.org/clematisnews.php

I lived in WPB for over 30 years and never entered this theatre which was located downtown near the library though I did go to the Paramount in nearby Palm Beach. Now that I’m a theatre buff I wish the theatre’s originality had not been compromised and it was as it opened in 1949. Strange to learn that this theatre never had a balcony.

The theater did not originally have a balcony – I worked there in 1986-89, when it was the home of the Florida Repertory Company. It was gutted around 1996 when the Burt Reynolds Institute for Theatre Training took it over.

Would love to see exterior and interior photos of when it was the Florida Theatre.
