Huntington's historic Keith-Albee theatre is getting a facelift for its new role as a 21st century performing arts center.
Several small projects have been completed. But Keith-Albee
Foundation Co-President David Tyson says there's still much work to
be done.
Tyson says the building needs a new roof, a new wall, larger
seats, and revamped dressing rooms. He says the nonprofit
foundation will have a capital campaign in the future to address
those issues.
Sachs Morgan Studio of New York is conducting a feasibility
study of the theater. Tyson says the firm is looking at everything
from the electrical system to how the foundation should spend its
money.
The ornate theater opened on May Seventh, 1928, as a movie house
and vaudeville stage.
