Our first batch of on-site engraving took place on April 24th. Bricks are still available, until they are all engraved. If you’re interested in an engraved brick, a form and pricing is available here.
Two of our volunteers, Bob Martin and Betsy Seidel, have been actively involved in helping us with the organ project. Several months ago they were informed that a gentleman from Seattle had passed away and the executor of his estate was looking for a home for his pipe organ. With the help of the Puget Sound Theatre Organ Society, we were able to procure this organ, which is in excellent condition. It is a Wurlitzer pipe organ with a “toy box” and we plan to use it for parts when we are able to raise the funds to install the organ. It is being stored in the LaVogue Building in Hoquiam for now, as the original organ parts are already taking up most of the space under the seats at theatre.
Well, the 7th Street Theatre made it on the list: SUSAN JOHNSON’S FAVORITE HISTORIC THEATERS IN WASHINGTON.
Here’s a teaser that was shot last year about this time when we showed National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation in conjunction with Ho Ho Hoquiam. Featuring the Lucemann as Cousin Eddie. We have a lot of fun this time of year.
We found someone who will engrave the installed bricks onsite. There are about 250 bricks that can be engraved. This is a great gift idea! Here’s the order form:
Here are a few photos of the new candlestick sign, which was mounted on Wednesday, October 10th. It was very exciting, and we had many people standing around taking photos and watching the progress. Ramsay Sign Co. did a super job of installation and replicating the original sign, and we are very proud to be able to light up our corner of downtown Hoquiam. The electrical is scheduled to be hooked up on Friday, and an official lighting ceremony will be held on Tuesday, October 16th at 7:00 pm. Our plan is to have the neon turned on all evenings from dusk until late night.
