It doesn't seem that long ago when you could walk in the Galleria in Downtown Rochester and visit a bookstore, grab a cup of coffee, and enjoy a magical space with a painted sky.  The Chateau Theatre was that space and I was so sad to see it close.  Walking through that hallway has never been the same.

Now, off-white walls and floors are what welcome us in the hallway that ties in the Wells Fargo side to the Galleria Mall.  The area just lacks color and personality compared to the vibrancy that greeted us years ago.  Visitors and those who never knew the magic of the Chateau have no idea what is behind that wall...until now.

As you walk through that hallway, you can now find a window where you can take a look at what is behind the off-white wall and watch as repairs and improvements are done.  The City of Rochester, MN shared the news on their Facebook page this week.  (You can see that below or by clicking here.)
