SCPA Outdoor Theater

I noticed that at the rear of SCPA (near the corner of 12th and Elm, they are just now installing the outdoor theater. I think they were holding off on this until they raised the money. It looks like they will extend the canopy from above the door all along the wall:

Anytime you dig aroung here, you dig up old building remnants

The bricks are the remnants of these buildings:

It looks to me like they should add some landscaping plants at the SCPA outdoor theater to dress it up a bit..... :)

Ugh, I hate to get sentimental about those buildings, but I'm having a hard time seeing the value of an outdoor amphitheater on that site, especially with what we've recently heard and seen about that oval area that will be part of the renovated Washington Park.

Visualingual, I agree with what you said, but especially since they tore down two perfectly solid, beautiful old buildings on that block and replaced them with generators/electrical equipment. Oh well, what's done is done.
