OROVILLE, Calif. - A historic Downtown Oroville state theatre is getting a major facelift with a new marquee.

The marquee sign, which has been on the building for about 40-years, was brought down on August 29 to soon be replaced with the new one.

Jim Moll, the President of the State Theatre Arts Guild, said the new sign will be a historic replica of the blade sign that was on the building when it opened in 1928.

"It's going to have all of the modern attachments to it, it's going to be led lit and it's going to look historically accurate which was one of the key concerns of our group," said Moll.

Moll explained the plan is to bring back the way the theatre looked in 1928 though he shared that will take years and millions of dollars so for now, they are focusing on clean-up and unifying the look of the theater.

"We've got some chandeliers which will be replaced with authentic replicas in the future but at least now it looks more like a movie palace and movie theater than it did for a long time," said Moll.

With the upgrades, Moll hopes the use of the theatre will rise.

The marquee relighting ceremony is scheduled for October 9th at 7:30 p.m.

The weather over northern California has finally calmed substantially. Although it would be fantastic to have valley rain and mountain snow, we have some exceptional weather ahead for the end of October and beginning of November.
