Spotlight: The Landmark
We were honored to help the Landmark Theatre in Syracuse, NY get ready for opening night. This gorgeously ornate space has been a gem of American culture since the 1920s, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A Greene Shop's work with the Landmark included stabilizing and repairing decorative plaster, performing upgrades to bring the lighting up to 21st Century energy efficiency standards, and restoring the painted patterns of an intricate gilded dome.
