The doors to Comet Theatre in Perham remain closed while renovation work continues inside.

The original floor was just redone and applied with varnish, according to Dolores Wasche, who has owned the theater since 1972.


There will be 175 new seats installed in the theater. Wasche described the seats as red rockers with cup holders.

Once the new seats are installed, new carpeting will be brought in and hopefully be completed in a couple weeks, Wasche said.
