the ownership of the buildings and the folks who work them. If they have to sell or give up their leases they are gonna get turned in to something else besides spaces for the arts. and the talented folks who work in and around these venues. the hotels, restaurants, bars, etc etc that all rely on these venues attracting people etc etc etc etc

The older theaters still need power, AC and Heat...or they'll get moldy and wood rot. We'll get over this eventually...but theaters still need upkeep. This is from before they raised funds to replace the carpet and chairs.

There are vultures waiting for everyone to miss a payment. Whether it's these venues or apartments. Assholes are going to make money off this pandemic.

That's the "Alabama Theater" it's part of a style that in the 20's and 30's was common. Seriously, they built these things from a template. The Alabama got a "Moroccan" treatment...and the "Fox" in Atlanta got a kinda shakespear...Roman.. treatment.

That's a decent lineup. Major Lazer is good live, even you don't like their music, the stage antics are fun. Too bad they're on at 1 AM east coast time.

IT's a nice space. But what the FARKETY FARK...is that wall paper crap. Usually you don't see that type of artistic treatment except in a Florida Comfort Station on I 75 Stop sponsored the lottery and the Citrus growers association for LIME month. I mean did they pull that pattern out of the boiler room from the 70's.

Building opened in 1982.it certainly has that '80's color scheme going.
Ive been the house sound guy for the last 25 years. Every time an artist comes in and sees that basket weave we tell them that the designer passed out drunk underneath a lawn chair.

I like the wooden ceiling. The call back to boat design, very acoustic. But that 'wall paper' green stuff pattern that looks like a HP printer pooping out a test sheet for 'crappy green'..wtf is that. Sometimes you just have to let things go. I mean a couple of pallets of Sherman Williams could fix that up quick.

It's Oregon. The place is named after the local timber baron, hence the wood. The basket weave stuff is actually plaster lathe, with some open spots in it to put speakers fit our acoustic enhancement system. The basket weave dampens the acoustics, making it great for loud stuff but dead sounding for symphonic stuff. There's 88 tannoy speakers placed throughout that weaving to add echo and delay to the room.

Not knowing Demi Lovato and Maklemore puts you in the olds category.  Both have been on Saturday Night Live.  Demi was a massive Disney Channel star.  Both have been on tons of late night and daytime TV shows.  Macklemore has 4 Grammys including Best New Artist.

But in general, INDEPENDENT venues don't get a ton of household names.  The popular names usually go to the arenas and amphitheaters and Ticketbastard/Live Nation owned venues.

Yours doesn't have a Organ. Where's your ORGAN Seattle. Does it rise up through the stage and we just can't see it because it's a TINY ORGAN.

It does have an organ.  An original Wurlitzer, and one of only three in the world still in it's original venue.

The organ pipes are up in the walls next to the stage.  You can see the arch with the grid covering directly behind the light in the first picture.  Pipes are behind it.

One of the things the Paramount does every year is a silent film festival.  They bring in an organ player to play it during the film showings, just like they would have done back in the day.

Yeah...We have a Wurlitzer too. IT's a MIGHTY Wurlitzer and has similar piping.
And it Rises up...out of the stage.
Trust me, I get a little tear in my eye seeing that huge organ rising up...all restored and proud, it's a beautiful organ. Are we gonna get into a organ wagging battle, because I'll put our organ up against yours anyday.
Ours is all red and purdy with gold. And we have a gay guy playing with our organ. Beat that!

You should see the bathrooms.
Seriously. They have these 'lounges' for smoking areas (back in the day) with fireplaces and such for guys lounge. For the ladies lounge...there's mirrors and 'fainting couches'.
I haven't seen the inside of the lady's room itself. But in the mens room there's these huge urinals that go right down to the floor so there's no embarrassing splashback. They really thought of everything.

I never noticed before. But apparently whoever chose the font for the "Lounge" sign in the restoration, just picked "GunSmoke Saloon" from the book.

I remember seeing a movie at one of the great theaters in SLC in the late '80s, much like that pictured - they hadn't remodeled it into 2 or 3 screens...what a vastly different experience it was.  Just fantastic, not like you're a hostage being herded into a hotel multi-purpose room to view a propaganda filmstrip...
