Turns Out this Building Isn’t a Cathedral After All
My whole life I've driven by this amazing building and thought it was a cathedral. Turns out it isn't and now new owners are turning the Scottish Rite Cathedral, Moline into a 620-seat theatre they're calling, "Spotlight Theatre & Event Center."
According to a QCOnline.com article the features a large stage, one of the finest organs in the area and a balcony area lined with stained-glass windows. There's a large 350 seat reception hall and a kitchen large enough to accommodate full meals for as many attendees.
The new owners plan to add a coffee shop and a tavern in addition to the theatre and reception hall. The third floor continues to house several small businesses. It just goes to show; you can drive by a building thousands of times and never really know what's inside.
