Block by Block, The Wall Comes Down

The Soo Theatre, completed in 1930, was divided into two movie theatres in 1974 by a sturdy, fireproof concrete block wall. The restoration of the theatre to its former glory had to start with the removal of that wall. Thus "The Curtain Can't Go Up Until the Wall Comes Down" campaign was born, complete with a song composed by Soo Theatre Project board member John Ignatowski.

Follow the story of how The Wall came down this spring. As shown in words, pictures, and even one video, this thrilling chapter in the Theatre's history was made possible through the truly monumental efforts of many local people.
