“Anyone know the story behind the giant saxophone mural on the back wall of The Beacham building? It must be 40 feet tall …”
– Jim Hobart
The Beacham Building was purchased by Larry and Sherry (great names!) Carpenter in 1975, who spent an estimated $250,000 to remodel and restore the building and transform it into a franchise of The Great Southern Music Hall.
The restoration included a mural of a saxophone on the back of the building, as shown below.
The Great Southern Music Hall closed in 1981 before housing a series of short-lived businesses like a laser light show, a laser tag business, a cabaret theater called Moulin Orange, and a celebrity dinner theater.
The saxophone lasted through them all.
