Beautifying the United Palace
The United Palace continues its comeback! Not only are we close to fundraising for a new cinema-quality projection and audio system and planning for the eventual restoration of our one-of-a-kind Wonder Morton organ, but we’ve begun the process of returning more of the beautiful interior architectural details to their glory days.
We’ve finished repainting the entrance, replaced damaged molding at the front of the stage, and even completed the Rev. Ike Legacy Library. Our current project: repainting the Harold Rambush-designed patterns that originally adorned the columns lining the orchestra level seating. We’ve hired a painter/carpenter known affectionately as Tony who has also done most of the recent restoration work in the United Palace (all of which was excellent), for this project. According to Tony, repainting the pattern will “add more light and refined ambience to the theatre.” See for yourself in the before and after photos below how the restored details further energize the space.
Singin' in the Rain
"Singin' in the Rain"
Is there a better springtime movie than "Singin' in the Rain"? A survey of UPCA"s movie-going audience didn't think so and chose this 1952 comedy dance classic as their April selection.
