As the Avalon Theatre in Milwaukee, Wisconsin gets closer to its planned opening this summer, changes are happening quickly at the theater. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel featured some of those changes in a recent article titled "A star is reborn: Restoration of landmark Avalon Theater in full swing":
The stars are being put back up in the sky at Milwaukee's Avalon Theater.
Not literally, of course. But installing new twinkling lights on the ceiling to re-create the Avalon's atmospheric feel is among the tasks on property owner Lee Barczak's to-do list.
His $2.5 million restoration of the long-closed Bay View neighborhood landmark is in full swing.
Other jobs include carving out space for a new lounge; preparing areas for a new kitchen, as well as new restrooms; and building the new marquee, which will evoke a 1920s look.
Click the Read link below to view the full article and see some of the photos they have there. We have photos of the exterior on the theater's Photo Gallery page.
