The Grove Construction
The Grove (LA) store is being renovated to add a Studio Bar, modify the theater and add back the 'kids' area. Here are some photos by Cedric that show the work.

The back wall/screen of the theater will be moved forward, according to sources, making for more storage in the back-of-house, but leaving room for a new 'kids' area wall-mounted merchandise displays.
The new Studio Bar exists where the second floor cashwrap previously resided--along the west wall.
Not directly part of the renovation, but notice the absence of overhead section signs. Most other stores have signs as of Nov. 2006, but they've been modified to reflect the re-configuration of the product displays.
