The stage from the balcony, which was in bad condition.
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 backdrop has become the pallet for water damage and graffiti.

2015. Water damage hastens the decay of the annex and its stage. Every time I visit this room, the chairs are in different places. Kodak Portra 400 in a Voigtlander Bessa.
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?

From the back of the house, looking at a lone chair on stage. From these seats it’s amazing to me that such a giant theater existed out of sight in the middle of downtown.
Lacy hated playing for people. She wanted to make the piano speak back to her, not make people stare.
