The prospect of major funding finally being available for a full restoration of the Loew’s, plus some important upgrades is exciting – but it’s also been a bit worrisome to some fans of the Theatre who are concerned that in the process the Loew’s special character will somehow be damaged or even destroyed.

To help reassure them, and give everyone the opportunity to feel part of the culmination of the process Friends of the Loew’s began years ago when we first used volunteers to start repairing and restoring the then-closed Theatre, FOL will produce a series of videos explaining the philosophies and methods of historic preservation and restoration, and then follow along as they’re carried out here.

In this first video, Colin Egan of FOL and Eric Holtermann of HMR Architects of Princeton, NJ talk about what preservation and restoration means and is planned in such a large, complex space as the Loew’s.
