The Adams Gallery presents Modern Theatre Encore: Breathing New Life into the Theater District.  The exhibit celebrates the history of the Washington Street Theater District as well as the many tradespeople and artists who labored to restore the Modern Theatre.

Photographs by Renee DeKona document the painstaking process of refurbishing each stone from the facade of the historic movie house, reassembling it like a giant puzzle, and adapting historic interior designs for the new theater.

Suffolk University played a key role in the current Theater District renaissance by restoring the facade of the historic Modern Theatre, re-establishing a performance space on the site and adding a gallery.
