UPDATE: Auditorium Fly System Renovation: Handball, anyone?

What does a naked theater look like? Like this:
The rail and the lines have been completely pulled, in this photo taken from the SL just upstage of the proscenium. (Never thought we had that much room, did you?

What's behind the old fire curtain?

Bricks. At least part of the way up. The old gray monster is down, and on its way out.

One oddity that we see is a concrete pad put down where the new rail will go.

This photo, taken from the SR well looking straight upstage, shows the freshly poured concrete where the rail system will be attached. The amount of force that the system is designed to handle requires a strong anchor/foundation. With our new automatic winches, this will provide stability and increase the degree of safety (in terms of load bearing) to levels unseen in the auditorium.

Stuff is happening quickly! WOOT! Check in regularly for updates as the new equipment begins to come into the theater!
