The stage from the balcony, which was in bad condition.
One of two projectors, still set to run old 3D flicks.
Though the proscenium went through two overhauls (1940s, 1970s), it is almost totally original to the 1916 design.
It’s a straight view from the projection booth to the stage, but hell of a walk. At a fast pace, I think it would take 10 minutes to walk from this spot to the chair. Behind the curtains is a big white screen, so the theatre could be used for either stagework or moving pictures. The two projectors are set up for 3D movies right now–hence the little switch below the window–a Polaroid 3D synchronizer. Cool, huh?
This is the original projection booth space, but it has been remodeled a bit to accommodate mixing boards and other live performance equipment. Before the theatre was separated to accommodate two stages, this would overlook two balconies, the house, and the main stage.
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).
Lacy hated playing for people. She wanted to make the piano speak back to her, not make people stare.
Looking up at the remodeled projection booth from the small stage.
