Renovation Update - Week 15
Remember those rolls of carpet we showed you last week? Well, a lot of carpet is in place, but there's a lot more that needs to be installed. The beautiful custom-designed carpet is down in both Kirby Lobby and cinema lobby. It looks fabulous. Why aren't there any pictures for you to see? We want it to be a surprise, so you'll have to stop by as soon as we're open to see it first hand, but here's a hint; it print has both gold and red tones. The first chance to see it will be this Saturday, September 24 at the Meals From the Market event that takes place on the plaza from 6 - 8 pm. You can read more about the Hard Hat Tour & Cookout here. Tickets are $45 and are still available as of today at 4 pm.
So, more carpet, red this time, has been installed in the Fletcher Hall balconies and on the stairs. It looks great with the gold walls and the teal seats. I also posted a picture of the Connie Moses Ballroom women's restroom with new tile on the floors and wall, new wallpaper and new partitions.
We'll be so glad to get back to our regular events and film screenings! Main Street, filmed last year right here in downtown Durham, will be our opening night film on Friday, September 30 with screenings at 7 & 9:30 pm and Sunday matinees at 2 & 4:30 pm. It will run through Thursday, October 6th nightly at 7 & 9:30 pm. Our first live event takes place on Saturday, October 1 featuring Lindsey Buckingham. Don't forget that the Escapism Film Festival is coming up soon - October 7-9 with 17 movies back on the screening 35mm. We can't wait to see you all here as we kick our season into high gear this month! It's going to be a great year!
