The Grand’s stately digital marquee was installed 10 years ago and has ceased to operate despite our best efforts to maintain it.
Taking pictures with the marquee in the background is something so many visitors do to remember their experience attending events at The Grand. It breaks our hearts that there is a blank band behind them rather than the name of the show they are so excited about seeing.
We hope to purchase a new marquee which will be of much better quality and comes with a seven-year parts and labor warranty. All gifts for the marquee above $100 will be recognized for a time on the marquee for a period of time after its installation, and permanently memorialized on a special Marquee Fund plaque in the lobby.
We appreciate the support of those who have already donated to the project.
