Help the Barrymore Theatre Replace Its Chairs! Donate Now

Posted by eastsidehistorymadison on April 14, 2018

From the Barrymore Theatre website:

“The historic Barrymore Theatre, an 88-year-old Madison entertainment institution and architectural landmark, is in need of capital improvements. We are beginning with your bottom and will be working our way to the top of the Dome over the next 12 years, as we approach the 100th anniversary of the building. The first project will be to replace the Theatre’s worn-out seating. The Barrymore needs to raise $200,000 to purchase and install approximately 750 new seats for the comfort and enjoyment of its patrons…

“The current seating at The Barrymore Theatre has been in place since 1967. For 50 years, thousands of people have made good use of those seats. Now they are in need of replacement. We anticipate that the new seats and the work involved in installation will cost $200,000 and we are looking to raise that money through ­our Chair-ity Appeal.”

p.s. Kind of looks like they used this photo from the East Side Album when they designed the Chair-ity Appeal logo, doesn’t it?
