OCALA, FL — It has been over 25 years since the Marion Theatre felt the glow of a projector on her screen. On Saturday August 11th the seats were full and lights dawned her stage after a four year $2 million renovation.

Charlotte Spell Bunyan has fond memories of the Marion Theatre.

“We came here in 1945,” she said. “We were here all the time…This was something special that my mother and I would do.”

Bunyan was one of dozens of people present for the theater’s grand reopening Saturday, a day that brought back fond memories for many.
