SALEM, OR — According to this report from the Statesman-Journal, the $3.2 million restoration and renovation project of the historic 1926 Elsinore Theatre is nearing completion. The theater is set to reopen in October and will present live entertainment such as Broadway shows and concerts.

Visitors will now be able to tour the Elsinore from noon to one on Tuesdays and Thursdays and see firsthand the progress that’s taking place at the former movie house. A state of the art sound system has been added, the lobby and murals have been restored, and stained glass windows have also been repaired.

Despite the departure of the theater’s executive director in May, and her replacement by an interim executive director, fundraising for the Elsinore has been successful. Thanks in large part to strong community support of the project, the final stage of the theater’s rebirth is moving along smoothly.

More info is available on the Elisnore website.
