Park Theatre to Get Restoration

posted by grant321 on June 22, 2004 at 3:46 pm

RACINE, WI — The Park Theatre was purchased in June of 2004 by the Westbury Group LLC, headed by a local man very much interested in theater preservation.

The theater will receive a complete restoration. Two store fronts will be incorporated into a much needed lobby and restroom expansion. The apartments located on the second floor will provide space for a new restaurant.

When the theater was originally opened in 1920 it was named the Capitol, when the restoration is completed, it will be called the Capitol Theatre for the Performing Arts.

Estimated opening date is November 2005.

We currently have a great offer for your refurbishing project. Although we can not help with funding, we can offer great Auditorium seats (fully cushioned \ floor mount) for a very great price.

For $59 USD we have numerous very well maintained seats, digital pictures can be provided, that could drastically reduce your renovation costs.

Give us a call (780) 432-4765 if you would be interested in these very historical seats.
