Economic Impact of Historic Theatres With Birmingham Landmarks. Inc.
Birmingham Landmarks Inc. has both commissioned and collaborated with several different entities for development of studies and reports addressing the restored Lyric’s economic and artistic impacts upon the City of Birmingham, as well as the economic feasibility of restoration and operation of the future Lyric Performing Arts Center.
These studies and academic investigations provide valuable support for Birmingham Landmarks ability to make sound business and financial decisions while planning for the restoration initiative. In addition, the studies provide valuable support for generating dialogue with major prospective donors who appreciate the exploration of these issues for both pragmatic and philanthropical decision making. You can read the studies and reports here:
