Old floor de­sign at theatre un­cov­ered

Western Suburbs Weekly - - NEWS -

A LONG-FOR­GOT­TEN floor de­sign was dis­cov­ered un­der the old car­pet at Su­bi­aco’s Re­gal Theatre last week dur­ing the first stage of its $10 mil­lion ren­o­va­tions.

The iconic art-deco theatre closed to the pub­lic in Novem­ber for three months of up­grades.

Last year, Re­gal Theatre Foun­da­tion chair­man and for­mer Su­bi­aco Mayor Richard Dig­gins said the two-stage restora­tion would in­clude works on the up­stairs bal­cony, re­plac­ing the western stair­case and a roof, new seat­ing, re­car­pet­ing, elec­tri­cal up­grades and re­paint­ing. Stage one is planned to be com­pleted by the end of this month.
