Leonhardt Andersen, 59, of Erie, owner of Bayfront Action Group, LLC, has been busy at work on the 83-year-old Warner Theatre.
He is restoring the luster to all of the brass at the front entrance to the theater, which opened in 1931. The restoration work includes the doors, windows, and ticket booth.
“It’s going to take a lot of work to get it all clean and get it back to the way it should look,” Andersen said.
Andersen removed the door handles that were heavily pitted. They were sanded and polished and now look like new.
“I’m humbled that I have been able to do this job. I hope when I am done with the work, people will see that Erie’s showplace has been brought back to what it should look like,” he said.
