Looks like money well spent to me. A great Greenville investment.
With a $16,500 fine and them not being done still, I wonder how they're going to be able to include that into their budget and not go under.

16500/10 years=1650/yr/12 months = $137.50/month

Even with interest, they'll be fine.

Keep in mind they are spending about a million on this project.

Jan. 26th is supposed to be the new opening date....

Have a feeling they'll get it done.

Is the exterior the finished product? It looks so...cheap. The industrial metal doors are not very inviting.

I highly doubt that's the finished product. Probably a temporary solution while they are putting the finishing touches on everything

The marquee even looks cheap though. It looks like something you’d see outside of a dive bar. Check out what the Appalachian Theatre on King Street in Boone has - they’re currently doing the same type of renovation. Or even the Turnage in Washington.

I see what you mean...I'm sure some corners were cut. I wasn't originally a huge fan of this 3 year renovation. I thought they'd be able to tear down & rebuild in less time & for less $$$. But it's here now, and whenever it finally opens, it will hopefully be a nice place to go to for live performances.

Agreed, no chance that's the finished product. The marquee, while simple, will look better as part of the finished product.

I agree. They should have installed a canopy more like the one that the State Theater had. The whole exterior is hiddeous, looks more like a bar than a theater. I thought the exterior was supposed to be restored to its original look. The Turnage Theater puts it to shame and it is a really attractive addition to Washington's downtown.
