The lobby animal stencils are now complete! EverGreene took off for a short time and just finished a few jobs including the stencils. There are four different animals painted on the walls of the 7th Street Theatre. Here's the only information we've found regarding their background -- The Hoquiam American, July 5, 1928:Bordering the upper walls of the lobby are stenciled likeness of the fabled ornythorinkus, vamupus cat and sidehill gouger, conceived by modern man as having once populated the forests and mountains of the Olympic Peninsula.
Michael Houser, Architectural Historian with the State Dept. of Archaeology and Historic Preservation spoke at our reopening celebration last Saturday and presented the Theatre Association with this award. We are proud!
