There's also an interesting bit of political history related to the theatre as it was used by the Communist Party as a venue for a play calling for the release of the Party leadership in the Depression. When one of the Party leaders who wasn't arrested at the time spoke, the theatre was shut down and the leader in question was charged with treason. That treason trial ended up bringing down Bennett in part.

It's always amazing how such small, seemingly unimportant things or places can have such interesting histories. But I am a history major lol

For anyone interested, they have a model suite of the townhomes open for viewing. The spaces are quite nice with excellent finishes.

The east tower has topped out its residential floors and it's just the mechanical box now. Gray brick in a herringbone pattern has been laid around the west tower entrance. The crane on the west tower was removed yesterday.
