Welcome moviegoers with a new 1930s-style marquee and the Star Walk of Fame – a sidewalk embedded with engraved stars bearing the names of Grandin Theatre supporters. Produce the $1.45 million project in a short timeframe and within budget.
Work under pressure to create and implement a meticulous production schedule. Assemble a team of skilled craftsmen to restore historic architectural details of a grand old theater.
