now with even more funk !

Eastown Theater

I also went into the theater area, up to the projection booth.

This is the underside of the balcony seats.

One of the views from the tippy top of the building, above the projection room behind the ventilation motors.

Back down on ground level, here is the rear of the plaster armature for the theater.

On the right is the ladder up to the area above the ceiling armature. I only know one dude (well, two – sorry nail – lmao) crazy enough to go up there….makes me nervous just looking at the ladder.

The Eastown Theater was on fire early yesterday morning. The apartment side took a huge hit, with the facade and corner completely collapsing.

Special thanks to the folks at Buildings of Detroit for the heads up on this event.
