Great Vintage Theatre 9/29/2010

A little known fact about the New Regal (former Avalon) Theatre:\r Shortly after it's opening, the theatre owners summoned the theatre's architect, John Eberson, to observe a phenomenon that was occuring in the audience watching the show.\r From the balcony, Mr. Eberson was shown an almost steady procession of theatre patrons leaving their seats and headed for the restrooms.\r It seems that a bronze fountain, with running water, in one of the wall arches on the left side of the theatre, was giving people the ""urge"" to visit the necessary rooms.\r A little tinkering with the plumbing of the fountain cured this urge, and the theatre patrons thence forth remained in their seats for the majority of the show.\r When I visited the theatre in 1971, the bronze fountain was still in it's niche on the left wall. I ahven't been back to the theatre since its restoration. I wonder if it's still there? more
