It looks like a lot of work is being done. Here are some pictures including the inside of the theater.

Okay, not a restored marquee, since it lost it’s original look, but a very nicely done marquee nonetheless. The art deco inspired lettering is gone, but at least there is some neon and bulbs in the new sign.

As somebody who leads an organization dedicated to saving a theater, I am sensitive when people imply they see no progress, because as I pointed out, these projects take time.I appreciate your efforts on this website. Let’s move on.

I was referring to both comments, not only yours. I didn’t say you are against saving theaters. I stated the comments weren’t supportive. There’s a difference there.

The comments didn’t sound patient. It is easy for back seat drivers to jump all over organizations working hard to reopen theaters. Fundraising takes time.

Those above 2 comments don’t sound supportive of the project to save, restore and reopen this theater! Capital campaigns take time.

The photo in the link posted by Lost Memory looks as if the “Save our Simon” effort is not faring well. Very sad!!

A 1989 photo of the stately and ornate but sadly, closed Simon Theater in Brenham.
