Upstage right looking at the back wall. Shall we climb that ladder to the grid? Photo: Hunter Kerhart - 2014



The view offstage right. Note that there's not much rigging upstage. By the time the theatre opened, they knew the days of big stage shows were over. Photo: Hunter Kerhart - 2014



The dimmer board. Onstage we see the box built into the lower part of the proscenium to isolate the speakers for the main floor theatre. The board is pretty simple. Three color masters. Stage lights (what there were) on the left, house lights on the right. Photo: Hunter Kerhart - 2014



Looking toward stage right at marquee letters on the back of the boxed-in area for the main floor speakers. Photo: Hunter Kerhart - 2014

An October 2015 look across the footlights, and into the auditorium -- here stripped of seats. The studs in the foreground are what's left of the wall that was installed to box in the main floor speakers and isolate the rest of the stage area. Photo: Hugo Ruiz

A view across the stage to the house left wall. Note the rigging backstage. The photo appeared with a September 2016 Ghost Princess blog post: "I went to the most amazing abandoned theatre today." Thanks to Hunter Kerhart for spotting it.



Fireworks on the stage of the stripped theatre. It's after the demolition of the partitions that were put in for the twinning job. We're looking all the way to the back wall. Photo: Sydney Santana on Instagram - 2016. Thanks to Matt Lambros of After the Final Curtain for spotting this one and Hunter Kerhart for sending it along.
