The Dayton Arcade – Waking the Giant
Great victories are rarely swift. Several victories have been won in the fight to revitalize Dayton, however, The Dayton Arcade is poised to be the project that changes everything.
Dayton Arcade: Waking the Giant is an in-depth multi-dimensional three-part documentary that tracks the restoration of the Dayton Arcade, which had previously been closed for 30 years. The documentary is a story of history, finance, and urban revitalization that is set against the drama of an architectural metamorphosis. It details the story of the Arcades’ rehabilitation – documenting the critical phases of construction – but will also visit what the original builders had in mind and how the Arcade had affected people’s lives in the past.
