Park Theater balcony to be brought back to life
The balcony at Park Theater could be next in the citys renovation process. Current plans are to renovate the lower half first. Phase two would be the upper half of the balcony.
Three quarters of a century after the vision of Cowan Oldham became a reality, Park Theater balcony renovation is in the foreseeable future to once again allow patrons their first view from above since 1986.“The one request I hear the most is if the balcony is available,” said Kendra Foust, McMinnville Parks and Recreation program coordinator. “They tell me about their memories of sitting in the balcony area of Park Theater and what movie they saw. Sadly, I’ve had to tell them that the balcony isn’t complete.”It isn’t, but it will be.
