The Colonial Fox Theatre Foundation is currently working to match a $500,000 Save America’s Treasures Federal Grant.

The $1,000,000 construction project (Phase 5 & 6) include: Façade and entrance rehabilitation, new heating and air conditioning, selected demolition, new electrical service, theatrical electrical connections and convenience outlets, improvement of egress and installation of emergency lighting for improved audience safety.
Phases 5 & 6 construction will take 6 – 9 months. Once this work is completed, the Colonial Fox will receive a temporary occupancy permit, allowing limited programming inside the Theatre for the first time in over 30 years.

The benefits to the Theatre and the Community that will result in operating on an Interim basis are many including:

• Over 10,000 people will attend an event inside the Colonial Fox Theatre’s doors in the first year.

• Programming INSIDE the Theatre is anticipated to motivate people to give to the Capital Campaign by experiencing performances or film at the Colonial Fox.

• It will provide the ability to explore the community response to Interim Programming which will be extremely beneficial to the Theatre as it plans for programming after opening on a permanent basis.

• Film Studios and talent agents will have experience in dealing with the Theatre. Creating the contacts necessary to run the Theatre during the Interim Phase will assist the Theatre in bringing the best talent and the best films to the Colonial Fox.

• Programming during the Interim Phase will be financially beneficial to the Colonial Fox and the ENTIRE community. The vitality of the Theatre and its Economic Impact will be on display to neighboring businesses, arts organizations and the community.
