Lobero Theatre Renovations
updated: Dec 21, 2013, 3:00 PM

By the Dedicated Staff of edhat.com

The Dedicated Staff was invited to the Lobero Theatre on Tuesday night to check out their new renovations. The Lobero Theatre opened in 1873 and has been celebrating 140 years of great memories. Leaflets handed out by the theatre explained what was included in the six month remodel with the hefty $7 million dollar price tag:

"Today the Encore: Lobero Campaign will ensure that the theatre remains vibrant for the next 140 years by:

  • restoring a youthful glow to the theatre's interior
  • providing new seats with more legroom and accessibility
  • installing heating and air conditioning for the first time
  • nearly doubling the size of the women's restroom
  • creating a safe and welcoming Esplanade at the theatre's entrance.

    These olive trees stirred up quite the discussion on edhat. Check out the comments here and here.

    Turns out, Esplanade is a fancy theatrical word for "a long, open, level area along which people may walk for pleasure." The Dedicated Staff took much pleasure in strolling the new Esplanade.

    For only $2,500, you can have a seat named after you in the auditorium. It's unclear if one would be able to seat in their named seat whenever they like. But it could definitely help get someone out of your seat by saying, "excuse me, my name is on it."

    Check out these behind the scenes photos provided by the Lobero Theatre.
