STAR Theatre Marquee Renovation Update!
If you have driven past the STAR Theatre lately we are sure you have noticed the exciting progress being made on our spectacular, one-of-a-kind marquee.
The STAR Theatre was designed by architect William Glenn Balch and opened in 1956. It was one of 17 theaters Balch designed in the state of California and the only one that is still open!
At the time of its construction, the STAR Theater boasted the largest marquee in San Diego County. Built during a time when neon was king, it was noted not only for its size but its spectacular animation. The marquee is 65 feet wide and 6 feet high and is one of the few remaining examples from its era. Sadly as the years have passed, the marquee, with its neon flashing twinkling stars and 48 foot cascading electric light waterfall, no longer functions as its designer originally intended.
It has long been a dream of the STAR Theatre Board to be able to restore this historic marquee to its original glory & shining splendor. What a more fitting time to make this dream a reality than during this year's 125th birthday celebration for the city of Oceanside.
Although the renovations have started, we are still short of reaching our financial goals for completion. We hope to have it finished in the next few weeks and begin preparations for a celebratory lighting ceremony.
You can be a part of restoring a part of California history for future generations to enjoy by making a donation of any size to our "Help the STAR Shine” campaign.
Any donation amount is most welcome and greatly appreciated. All donors who give a gift of $50 or more will a special invitation to our December Gala and access to VIP seating for our annual performance of Annie.
