Tearing it Up! UPDATE

The Hollywood Pantages Theatre is a very different place when there is no show in the building. The stage returns to its black blank canvas and the auditorium seems much smaller without the audience members filling each seat. While we do miss you when you’re gone, we take these quiet moments to keep the old girl looking like her fabulous self.

This year we had just about 4 weeks between An American in Paris and The Bodyguard to get all of the seats removed, rip out all of the carpet, get the new carpet laid down, and get all of the seats back in place. The photos below show what we have done so far.

Day 1: All of the seats have to be unbolted from the floor before they can be removed. Seats are removed in groups of three or four. Once seats have been cleared from an area the carpet is then pulled up.

Row SS begins to fall backwards after having the bolts removed.

Workers begin to pull up the carpet from the rear of the 200 section.

Orchestra seats begin to take over the lobby.

Seats were also placed in the lower bar near the women’s restroom on the West side of the building.

Seats filling up the colonnade near the tiled drinking fountain.

The seats in the rear 200 and 100 sections have been completely removed.

Air conditioning vent boxes are now visible with the seats removed. The Hollywood Pantages cooling is based on a push/pull system. The vent boxes open to 2 massive pressurized air chambers known as the plenum located right below the seats.

By the end of day 1 over half of the seats have been removed from the orchestra.

Day 2: Seats at the front of the orchestra are moved onto the stage. The last of the seats must be removed along with the rest of the carpet.

By the end of day 2 all seats and carpet have been removed from the orchestra. Workers begin picking up pieces of hardware from the seats.

Day 3: The floor must be cleaned and prepped for new carpet installation.

Crews work to vacuum and sweep the floors to prep for new carpet.

Vent boxes are inspected and maintained, any remaining nuts and bolts are picked up.

UPDATE! 

On July 10th we began on phase two of our re-carpeting project which included the lobby, mezzanine, and colonnade. Check out the progress below.
