Has anyone been inside of this venue recently?
Was the interior restored or maintained as original?
Did the sky painting on the ceiling remain?

I work in Tuxedo and pass by there every so often. I am glad it was saved.

Looks pretty much the same, except the box office window looks absent. I wonder why they changed the name? Cheverly seems more sensible than “Publick”… it’s certainly not ‘olde tyme’ style in the least.
