Just in time for the holidays, the Sayre Theatre is aglow again with the installation of the new Sayre Marquee. The Grand Lighting ceremony took place on October 29. It was the perfect evening to honor the late Dr. Boselli and his family for their generous contribution to this beautiful theater. Nearly 100 people in attendance learned about the history of the marquee and how the restoration project unfolded, while all of the groups and individuals who helped bring this project to fruition were honored.
Installation of the marquee is nearing the end. The soffit and lighting under the marquee canopy is being completed, dedication pavers and bricks in the brick plaza have been installed, and Granite Works is moving forward with the construction of the base designs, which will cover the steel supports in marble bases and architectural coverings.
