“The theatre is being restored to its 1939 appearance and it’s going to be beautiful,” Husser said earlier.
The theatre will boast 475 seats – 150 in the balcony and the remainder on the floor level. It will feature a huge screen that will show classic movies.
“It will also be a great venue for concerts and plays as it will feature state-of-the-art lighting and sound,” Husser said.
Throughout the renovation process, Husser said that the architects, as well as designers have aimed to preserve the beauty of the past.
“A lot of research has been done on the theatre’s appearance in 1939, which has led to the color and fabric choices for the restored theatre,” she said.
