Saluting the Admiral

The Admiral is a longtime landmark in Bremerton, WA.

The Admiral Theatre in Bremerton, Washington opened in 1947 and is still active today, presenting theater and music, and educating young people in the arts. You can even grab dinner there before a show. Recently the facility was treated to a complete restoration, both inside and out. Lyons Painting & Design, LLC, was hired for the interior, and after successfully completing that audition, was chosen to take on the exterior as well.

It isn’t called the Admiral for nothing, and the paint job was designed as a tribute to the U.S. Navy. “The theater enlisted a local architectural and design firm to choose colors for the exterior of this community icon,” said company owner Chad Lyons. “In tribute to the Navy and the structure’s namesake, the designer thoughtfully chose the color palatte based [on] the Navy Admiral’s uniform.”

Lyons Painting chose the paint and decided to sail along with Sherwin-Williams Loxon Self-Cleaning Acrylic for the charcoal blue and white. “Additionally, we used Sherwin-Williams Resilience Exterior Satin for the accent color Rayo De Sol, which is a color-rich yellow,” said Lyons. “The Resilience line offers a factory-ground yellow that was tinted to provide a greater resistance to UV fading.”

Lyons pointed to safety as the biggest challenge, mainly due to the theater’s height and tiered structure – all that balcony seating demands a tall building. The crew erected scaffolding, brought in lifts, and to protect the innocent, they rerouted all passersby, whether on foot or on wheels. “We consider it a great honor to have been chosen to protect and enhance this historic icon that holds an important place in Bremerton’s community history,” Chad concluded.

Safety on a busy street is paramount.
