Out with the old

Matt Berkheimer pushes a load of seat cushions up the aisle at the Mishler Theatre on Tuesday. He was among a small army of workers from Pittsburgh-based Irwin Seating, who began removing the 870 seats and carpeting from the Mishler Theatre on Monday morning. The interior of the theater is undergoing a $400,000 makeover. The seats that were removed had been installed in the late 1960s.
