Renovation is underway at the Admiral Theater though some minor delays, which are inevitable it seems, have pushed the opening date back a bit. The work has started in Pier 1 (the theater to the east) while Pier 2 remains open. The ladies room is completely gutted which means one restroom, now equipped with a lock, must serve everyone. The Admiral is open and showing films but the early show has been cut to allow workers to remove the old and prepare for the new. The new seats are now stored in the lobby, in boxes, waiting for the theater spaces to be renovated and revised. No firm date on the actual completion of the work is yet available but work is proceeding.
