In 1984, the Mann Theatre closed and remained shuttered until 1996, when current Hennepin Theatre Trust President/CEO Tom Hoch and former Historic Theatre Group President Fred Krohn initiated a five-year effort to save and restore the Pantages Theatre. During the renovation, architectural drawings were found and used to restore much of the theatreâ€™s decorative plasterwork and character. The stained-glass â€œmonitor,â€ a false skylight in the center of the auditoriumâ€™s ceiling, was revealed after layers of paint were removed. In cooperation with the City of Minneapolis, on November 7, 2002 the completely renovated Pantages re-opened at a cost of $9.5 million. Since then, the intimate Pantages has presented music, theatre and dance artists including Mikhail Baryshnikov, Vince Gill, Feist, Todd Rundgren, The Blenders and collaborative productions with Twin Citiesâ€™ organizations including the Jungle Theater, the History Theatre, Chanhassen Dinner Theatres, Cantus and Theater LattÃ© Da. Hennepin Theatre Trust is now the owner and operator of this magnificent structure.
