The restoration has been proceeding slowly, but now it is almost complete, and well worth the wait. The theater is a jaw-dropping example of an Art Deco palace. I forgot to bring my camera when I visited (argh!), but I did find a decent slideshow here. You really need to get a taste of what a sumptuous, opulent place this is. I can imagine what it was like in the thirties -- all those flapper girls with their bobbed hair, and the dashing young men....
Of course I came home and had to play with the Art Deco imagery. The lobby was painted in blues and greens and had something of water theme. Here's a collage I made for my journal. Sorry about the poor quality of the photo -- I really need a scanner!
It's been quite cold and frosty the past couple of mornings. I love to look at the frost on the plants -- so delicate.
