Momence Theatre continues restoration
MOMENCE, IL — The Momence Theatre just east of Kankakee, IL, continues its restoration work. Currently we are making major repairs to secure the roof and get the building closed in for the interior work. Recently an engineering firm was brought in to give an analysis of the building’s condition and it turned out to be better than expected. We now have a plan of attack to move the four center posts holding the auditorium room in place.
The town of Momence, which is an Illinois Main Street community, continues its work to bring all of the wonderful historic buildings back into business. Their facade grant program has been a major help to us with tuckpointing.
We encourage all small town theaters that are able to get back on line to go for it. Lots of headaches but wonderful results.
