166 | MAY + JUNE 2015 BY BETTE KEVA Beverly's old Cabot Theatre is catching its second wind. The pulse of The Cabot still beats. One of the longest running thea- tres in the United States—from its Vaudevillian birth until now—the famed Cabot Theatre in the heart of downtown Beverly is opening its doors, after a brief closing, to a vastly changed era.

The theatre has always been a place to behold. With its red carpet and 1920s-era balcony seats; its or- nate frescoes, murals, and gold leaf; and the 43-foot golden dome with bronze chandelier (hidden, but not for long), one cannot enter without being struck by its grandeur.
