The Grand Theater is currently undergoing restoration. It will be used as a community arts center upon completion of this undertaking. So far, the windows have been replaced, some new drywall installed, new seating is underway as well as a general overall renovation. The progress is being completed as funding allows.
Canton is much like most other small plains towns in the sense it is suffering from depopulation making it difficult to complete such projects for many reasons.
The Grand Theater is a tall, red brick structure featuring a wonderful stylized bulb lit marquee topped by a starburst. This striking marquee vertically spells out “Grand” and is highlighted with gold, green and red. The marquee is often lit making it the focal point of this small downtown. More information concerning the Grand’s history will be posted as soon as it becomes available.
