Franklin Theatre Marquee Lighting Ceremony
It has been more than 40 years since the Franklin Theatre’s marquee has lit up 419 Main Street in Historic Downtown Franklin, and on Jan. 29, 2011, at 5 p.m., the marquee will once again shine. The Next Generation of the Heritage Foundation, comprised of 21-40 year old Heritage Foundation members, has made a $100,000 pledge to fund the replica of the original 1937 Franklin Theatre Marquee.
In honor of this special occasion, the Next Generation Heritage Foundation is sponsoring a “Champagne and Shopping Hour” beginning at 4 p.m. in many of the shops on Main Street. Participating shops include Avec Moi, Bathos, Bob Parks Realty, Bink’s Outfitters, Dion’s, Franklin Tea, The Heirloom Shop, Serendipity Skincare, VueOptique, Whats-In-Store, Yarrow Acres, and many more!
At 5 p.m., the ceremony will begin on the street in front of the Theatre. Main Street will be closed for the event beginning at 4 p.m., and parking will be available in Downtown Franklin’s two free parking lots located at 2nd Avenue South and 4th Avenue South. Don’t miss this moment in Franklin history!
