Southtown facade restoration

SPRINGFIELD, IL — Restoration has begun on the Southtown Theatre!

Although slow due the cold weather, the top of the facade is finished. The marquee is in the process of being dismantled and removed to the sign shop for new sheet metal, wiring and neon. This should be complete by late spring of ‘07.

Great theatre story and its wonderful to read about the marquee restoration! Congratulations and thank you for caring about this marquee! So many have been taken down and destroyed, but NOT THIS ONE! Even though the Southtown isn’t a theatre anymore you, as the owner, made the decision to restore the original marquee and incorporate it into your stain glass business! Great idea!
