Photos of Cleveland Ohio's Allen Theater on the first day of renovation
Built in 1921 as a 3000 seat movie theater, the Allen closed up "officially" in 1968. Seeing spotty use there after, it was very close to becoming another parking lot. Now completely renovated, it brings Cleveland's Playhouse Square holdings to roughly 10,000 seats. The second-largest performance arts center in the United States.

had started to take out the brass
railings, only to re-install them once the
theater's future was secured.
