This is a photo of the interior of the Orpheum Theater just a few minutes before the start of Lewis Black's appearance. This view shows the side wall of the theater, with the stage at the left.
The red glow at the bottom of the ceiling transitions into a night sky directly overhead. The City and private donor spent $14 million for a 12-year renovation project to transform the theater from and old movie theater into a performing arts venue.
It is hard to imagine how the previous owners painted black paint over the interior fixtures and even the murals on the side walls.
This week we are showing photos of the people of the Sepik River, Papua New Guinea on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
