There are a lot of electrical boxes and switches, mainly in the projection booth, which we have no ides of their use. We blew a circuit, a wall outlet and booth ceiling lights, and we can’t locate the correct fuse or breaker.
I doubt much has changed since you were there, only what was necessary for our live shows. The projectors are still there, we are looking to get rid of them and the screen, for a fair price of course.
We sold an old projector (head)to the guy from South Carolina, his name is Marvin Mednick, used to run the projectors in Mountaindale or Woodridge. He wrote a book about it.

There is so much I want to know. Which seats were the original? The green velvet or the Art Deco? There are dozens of switches and electrical components that are a mystery to all of us. We had a guy up from SC who used to run the projectors in Woodridge or mountaindale who showed us quite a bit in the projecyion booth, but we want to know more of the history and events.

I am on the board of the SCDW and we own the Rivoli theater. It is the home of our community theater group. We are presently doing extensive renovations and construction inside and hope to do the outside repairs come this spring. Any further historic information would be appreciated. As part of our renovation, we are dedicating three areas of the lobby to the history of the building.
