EverGreene completed a full restoration of this magnificent, 1930s art- deco style theater designed by B. Marcus Priteca. Over 45 decorative painters and plasterers worked on site over a fast- track schedule of just six months, consuming nearly 31,000 worker hours.
The scope of the restoration included the historic plaster ceilings and walls, an enhancement of the decorative painting scheme that included 85,000 square feet of metal leafing (gold, silver, copper, and bronze), applied to the ornate ceiling, sculpture, and lobby. Over 1,800 gallons of paint were used for the polychromy throughout the theater.
EverGreene also replicated the lost proscenium mural based on archival photographs, and replicated a lost lobby mural based on the one existing mural remaining.
