A Wall Decoration Uncovered

The ongoing restoration of the old York Theatre in the 600-block Commercial has revealed an old wall and what I take to be its decoration.

It is hard to say exactly what it is. However, it would be nice to think it might be from the original Alcazar motion picture house days of the 1910s. It seems to fit where the left-hand side of the original entrance arch would have been.

  1. The "restoration" of the theatre is going to cost at least $14 million. Now that this important original detail has been revealed, the big unanswered question is — will it be "restored" or is the interior going to be totally 2012? I vote for authentic restoration – Bruce MacdonaldCan anyone supply an answer? It's out there somewhere.
