Grand Vision’s restoration work began in 1996 when we took on the challenge of restoring the historic marquee and neon blade sign, which had been dark for many years. Since then, we have undertaken many preservation, restoration, maintenance and upgrade projects, including the “Save Your Seat Campaign” capital campaign of 2004-2006. Local residents, businesses and fans of Art Deco design adopted over 1,000 Theatre seats. These funds enabled Grand Vision to fully restore the Theatre’s seats, install safe, modern stage rigging, a movie sound system and much more. This restoration work provided the necessary improvements that have enabled the Theatre to function as a community performing arts center since reopening in late 2006.

See the stories below for details on the many community-driven restoration projects that Grand Vision has accomplished.
