Eastwood Theatre now Barrymore

How could a story about Madison's lost theaters be complete without a mention of the Eastwood Theater. Built in 1929 and part of the vaudeville circuit as well. Also the first theater to have geothermal cooling. Was the Cinema for many years as movies only. Purchased and renamed the Barrymore in 1987.

Capitol Theatre Sign

I would like to suggest to the City that the next State St art installation be the restoration of the Capitol Theatre sign and attaching it to the side of the Overture Center. Having the Orpheum and Capitol signs framing the dome of the Capitol would be amazing I bet it would gain way more public acceptance than a set of irregular shaped drums or a roofless bandstand.
