The reality of the extraordinary change that is about to rock our world is slowly dawning on us all. It seems that each day a new major development shows up in the theatre space.
Last week we finished all the interior drywall and completed a major portion of the solid walnut concession bar in the lobby. We also finally removed the entire scaffolding that filled the lower level of the theatre. The mezzanine infrastructure is completely done. It has the feel of a performance space again.
Planned work this week includes the beginning of the seat installation and a start on the painting of the interior walls – as well as numerous other finishes that are scheduled in every corner of our space.
GENERAL PROJECT INFORMATION:
We are delighted to announce that we have received a significant gift from Elaine Wolf for a major renovation of our mainstage theatre space. The renovation will include a new mezzanine level (adding about 110 seats), a fully accessible row in the orchestra, new stage floor, new electronic marquee, new lobby, new lighting and sound equipment and much more. Work began in the summer of 2011 and continues through early 2012. A reminder that we are open for business during the entire construction period!!
As many may already know, our completion date for the theatre has been slightly delayed. It was our hope to open our new facility with our terrific film festival followed by our children’s theatre production prior to our official grand opening in March. Due to a delay in pouring the concrete for our mezzanine, we have decided to move our film festival to another venue to insure the best preparation for one of our most important events. Patrons should note that we are moving our film festival to the elegant Denver Film Center on Colfax (home of the Denver Film Society). The festival will take place on the same dates with some slight adjustments to some film start times. Check the website or contact the box office for complete details (303-316-6360). This change will in no way affect our official grand opening which is still scheduled for March 24, 2012. We deeply appreciate your understanding and support.
We are excited about our theatre grand opening event will be held on Saturday, March 24 and feature the Grammy award winning group, The Manhattan Transfer. Tickets and more details are available on our website!
