Park Theatre shows a little skin
The Park Theatre is showing quite a lot of skin during its renovations.
Built ca. 1915, it was extensively renovated in 1933 and again in 1936 by owner Rudy Besler. Some of this work can be seen in building's current configuration.
This image shows where the roof was raised by four feet in 1930 to improve circulation.
This image shows the 25 foot wide extension added in 1936.
You can even see the bracket for the theatre's ca. 1930s sign.
