Renovation of historic Galesburg theater gets rave reviews

GALESBURG, Ill. (AP) — The renovation of a more than 100-year-old theater in western Illinois is getting rave reviews.

The Register-Mail reports (http://bit.ly/2mAgjTw ) improvements to the Orpheum Theatre in Galesburg have so far included a new sound system, stage curtains and a repaired roof.

Executive Director Kevin Maynard says he expects the rest of the repairs funded by a nearly $1 million capital campaign to be completed by next year, barring unexpected delays.

The vaudeville theater first opened in 1916.

Last year the Orpheum raised $920,000 through a capital campaign, exceeding its $850,000 goal. As of this week about $400,000 has been spent.

Maynard says many people are coming in and seeing the changes. He says they’re saying the renovations are “breathing new life into the building.”
