Bio: The Olympic Theatre was originally built in 1927 and used as a grand ballroom. It was built using a Czech style decor that emulated the French Renaissance era. The developers built this ballroom to a grand scale. As you enter you are faced with a large open red staircase and as you reach the top you are faced with an overwhelming block long lobby that is presented in great detail with gold-leafing and ornate plastering. The ceilings and walls have been fully restored to demonstrate the color and vibrancy the ballroom was built to. The variance of color pulls your attention to the fine details of our past construction. When entering the Theatre, you will surely see the preserved mural above the proscenium or stage. The mural was originally hand painted on a canvas backdrop representing music, literature and of course art. The numerous detailed arches surround the large comfortable auditorium. During the 1970s to 2000s, the theatre mostly provided motion picture showings while still accommodating live performances. Hidden behind the ornate history is a surprisingly detailed audio and visual facilities. Over $250,000 of audio and visual equipment is placed to secure only the best in lighting, visual effects and sound quality.
