The stage from the balcony, which was in bad condition.
Every vaudeville show would use different curtains, and of course there had to be a white screen for the films themselves. Lit with four big construction lights.
The State School stage, taken as it was getting scrapped.
The house of the NorShor is surprisingly large, even divided in half. It seems unthinkable that this stage has been empty for so long.
The stage had seen some water damage, but it can (and should) be brought back!
Though the proscenium went through two overhauls (1940s, 1970s), it is almost totally original to the 1916 design.
Lost words over the auditorium entrance.
The projector booth, above the balcony in the auditorium.
The main stage and the retired (and in this instance, scrambled) marquee that will be repaired and reinstalled above Superior Street. A former manager of the building I used to photograph Nopeming with told me that the letters for the Art Deco tower are stored somewhere in the NorShor to this day, but I did not see them (and frankly, I doubt it).
