Purchase a bulb on our marquee

posted by ssteve on January 26, 2007 at 6:44 am

NORWALK, OH — We are currently trying to raise some funds to help purchase some newer projection equipment, restore the marquee, sponsor some live plays and help with operating costs.

We have over 800 bulbs on our marquee and for $50.00, individuals and businesses can “purchase” a bulb. In return, you will get your name or business name listed in our live event programs for one full year.

We have owned the Norwalk Theatre for about two months and need some help to get it off the ground. This is a great way for people who want to see another historic art deco theatre survive, to help out.

Go to our website and check out the pictures of our theatre and the mailing address if you would like to “purchase” a bulb. You can also see the magnificient marquee on our website, too. You may purchase more than one bulb if you would like. Each bulb you purchase can have a separate name listed in our programs.

Thanks for your help!

Um…where are the pictures inside the projection booth showing what projection and sound equipment you already have in place? Your “technical photos” should always include the projection booth equipment and movie speakers behind the screen.

Many times some simple upgrades or kits are all that’s needed. You may not need to shell out big bucks.

I wasn’t aware that the Norwalk Theater is still considered a non profit venture. Is it? If so, it would be a great idea to post your 501c3 status or other IRS info on your site so that people can know the tax advantages of a donation. If you are indeed a for-profit entity, i see little hope of garnering “donations” to your cause.

The Norwalk was an excellent example of Eberson’s grecian deco treatment. Please do all you can to retain the design and flavor of this fabulous theater. It has an important place in the fabric of American Theater History and deserves to be preserved as its designer and architect intended! Town & Country was always very aware of their treasure and the responsibility that it entailed. I do hope that as the new owners you will continue that stewardship.
