Grand Center Arts Academy, is this a private or taxes supported concern? Curious as to where the $11 million is coming from?

Hi, I’m the Technical Theatre Coordinator for Grand Center Arts Academy. And yes, this theatre (The Victoria) will be our new home sometime late spring of 2014. I’m working on a history of the building. Does anyone have any details of the time when it was the Sun?? Thanks L.D. Lawson-Mixon

Restoration of this theatre is underway! It will be restored to its original condition ( although seating will be reduced to about 800)

I drove by the Sun last night and the marquee was lit. I took pictures if anyone is interested.

It was announced that an arts school may restore the Sun theatre as its main performance space in the near future.

I haven’t heard anymore about it. You could contact Grand Center Inc. in St. Louis and ask them about it!! Let us know what you find out.

Good news. There is an entertainment company that has the Sun under contract. Plans call for restoring it for a music and entertainment venue.
