Remodeling the theater lobby at SJC
A few months ago I attended one of the SJC plays and noticed that they had a horse in the display case. I took a picture because I knew that sooner or later I would put it on this blog.
This display case is in the theater lobby, which is undergoing very slow renovation. The floor tile has been installed, though it does not look completed to me. A new false ceiling in being installed, as you can see from the picture below taken on the stairs in front of the theater lobby. The lights are still improvised.
When you are on these stairs, there is a scary view when you look down. Do they still make staircases like this?
Also in the stairwell is scaffolding to repair or repaint the walls.
The first floor of the science building, now called the Evans Arts and Science Building, was renovated several years ago. Someone, and I forget who, told me that the lighting fixtures in the theater lobby would be similar to what is now on the first floor.here and here and it looks intriguing. I am not sure what the dates are, but will post it on the bulletin board when I learn more. SJC has enough musical and acting talent to put on a good show, and college kids should have fun playing middle-schoolers.
