Concrete Theatre reopens

CONCRETE, WA — Today, the Concrete Theatre reopened after being dark for several years. Marilyn Monroe in “Some Like it Hot” (1959) was the first movie to play in the 87-year-old theatre since 2007.

New owners Valerie Stafford and Fred West refurbished the interior, moving all the seats to allow more leg room, installing curtains on the auditorium walls, adding new carpet and paint throughout and generally giving the venue a fresh look.

It looks like a dollhouse.

It looks lovely and cosy but how does its interior look like?
