Presently, the structure that housed the karate studio is in poor repair and needs to be removed. The gym has temporary shoring in place and the window frames have been removed for repair and restoration. The Lobby has been cleared of debris and is serving as a staging area for other projects. The surviving murals have been removed and are being safely stored in hopes of repairing and replacing them in the entryway.
In the future, the Kitchen and dining room will be refitted to serve as a lobby and concessions area for the theater as well as a catering kitchen. The Gymnasium will be enlarged to seat around 250 or Dinner Theater for 180. An all new, full fly stage will be constructed to the East where the karate studio now stands. Plus a new floor will complete this Community room to be used for receptions, fundraisers, Senior lunches, BINGO, rehearsal space, and much more!
Restoration efforts at the Atascadero Printery are supported by the Agua Caliente Chapter of Questers International as well as the California State Chapter. They hope to raise funds to restore the entryway and murals, the front door, and the windows throughout the building. The Engraving room will become the box office of the new community theatre.
