The Relighting will be Grand-Holly Theatre

In between working on covered bridges and power projects, the Holly Theatre slowly inches towards its “Grand Relighting” ceremony, scheduled for April 21.  By that time the two huge signs should be installed, the new doors, the beautiful door hardware, and poster cases installed, the sidewalk and incredibly elaborate ceramic tile will be in place and all the windows cleaned, repainted, and looking presentable.  It’ll be a busy few weeks as products stream in from around Jackson County and beyond, and workers from Hammonds Construction race to finalize all the details on schedule, and as all of the logistics associated with this exciting project for the JPR Foundation and downtown Medford come together.  All in all, it will be a memorable evening.  

Here are some current photos, just to whet your appetite.  The scaffolding came down last week, once the roof and cornice work was complete and the damaged portions of the brick were repaired.  Above Jay and Noah Treiger are repairing the incredibly complicated casement windows of the 4th floor (Jay says there were over 400 corners!).  In the next photo the guys are re-installing the original windows of the 2nd floor, after they have been entirely restored.  They look great!  Below is a 'progress' shot from AlphaSigns, who are working on the mammoth 33' tall pylon sign that will be installed at the corner of Holly and 6th streets

Be sure and mark your calendar for April 21, 2012.  The events will start around 6:00 or so and once it's good and dark out JPR and the City will "flip the switch" on the blade sign and the marquee.  It won't be dark then!
