CHICO, Calif. - Power or no power, the lights on the newly restored marquee on the historic State Theatre on Myers Street in Downtown Oroville will be switched on Wednesday evening, October 9th.

The public is invited to a small celebration planned for 7:30 p.m.

Jim Moll with the State Theatre Arts Guild (STAGE) told Action News Now that they are bringing in a large generator to make sure any potential power outages don't interfere with the milestone celebration.

Moll said it cost $375,000 to create a nearly exact replica of the marquee that was on the building for 50 years.

The theater itself was built in 1928 by renown California architect Timothy Pflueger.

STAGE is a non-profit organization made up of dedicated volunteers who operate and manage the theatre, which is now a Performing Arts Center.

STAGE is working to assume ownership of the building from the City, so it can continue to preserve and protect it. You can find out more at www.orovillestatetheatre.com
