Theatre rising - Around the Arch
December 2009 Issue
Georgia Theatre owner Wilmot Greene in early November took media on a tour of the inside of the Georgia Theatre, which was gutted by fire on June 19. Greene has announced plans to rebuild the theater and has launched a fundraising drive to cover the cost—estimated to be upwards of $3 million. To raise money he has partnered with The Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation, a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to restore buildings of historic and cultural importance. The Georgia Trust has established a fund to accept tax-deductible donations toward rebuilding the Georgia Theatre. To contribute, go to http://www.georgiatrust.org/preservation/georgiatheatre.php. A documentary of the theater, which dates back to the 1920s and has hosted more than 10,000 musical acts, also is in the works. For more information on the effort to restore the theater go to http://www.georgiatheater.com.
