Midtown Auditorium

Drawing I produced in 1998 after I was involved in salvaging light fixtures, staircase railings, and a bit of ornamental plaster from the theatre prior to its complete gutting. In this drawing, the intricate paintwork around the proscenium is a good representation of what was there, but the orange sidewall color is conjecture, based on other theatres of the time. The faux sky and the blue glowing covelight in the sidewall arches is also conjecture, based on other theatres. The church that occupied the theatre for many years had carefully converted the side arched coves into functioning windows, so I do not know what was there originally.
