The Preferred Studio for Theater Restoration

EverGreene has provided restoration work for more than 250 historic theaters in communities large and small across the country, from Radio City Music Hall in New York City to the Grand Opera House in Meridian, MS and the Pantages Theater in Hollywood, CA. President Jeff Greene has served extensively on the board of the League of Historic American Theaters, assisting in the establishment of services and networks to support theater preservation efforts, which in turn often spark extensive downtown revitalizations.

Theaters whose original decorative schemes have been repainted can benefit from a historic finishes investigation by the studio during Planning & Design. Subsequent efforts usually address interior surfaces and substrates with a focus on plaster, paint, and murals. The studio has also provided for the conservation and replication of Historic Murals & Artwork for numerous important artworks installed in theatrical venues.
