Restored Fenelon Marquee To Officially Light Up September 29th

Submitted by Films by the Falls

Community event organized to commemorate the official unveiling and lighting up of the Fenelon Theatre Marquee and to celebrate the years long adventure to restore and relocate this historic landmark of Fenelon Falls, Ontario.

The journey from Colborne to Oak Street for the Fenelon Theatre Marquee was not a leisurely stroll down Francis and May Streets to its new location outside the Chamber of Commerce Tourism and Visitors Centre. To help guide the way a group of volunteers, craftsmen, supporters, visionaries and believers from the community of Fenelon Falls and surrounding Kawartha Lakes area, embarked on the task to restore the sign that had been donated back to the community by property owner Steve Gibson when the Fenelon Theatre was demolished in November 2016.

The official unveiling and lighting up ceremony of the newly restored Fenelon Theatre Marquee will be held on Saturday SEPTEMBER 29th at 7:30pm. The lights will be turned on shortly after dusk. There will be a reception following the ceremony at the Maryboro Lodge (the Fenelon Museum), which will be open for this special evening event. In the spirit of the movies that once flicked by the falls, we invite everyone to come dressed up as a glamorous version of themselves or their favourite movie star and to really get into glitzy mood of the evening. Plan to celebrate with good cheer, a silent auction and many stories and recollections of days gone by. Refreshments will be served and all the exhibits of the Museum will be open to peruse, including the original projector from the old theatre.

The Theatre Marquee Restoration Group officially formed in the fall of 2016. Many businesses and individuals came together to make this project a success. Funding came from the Legacy C.H.E.S.T. Fund, Powerlinks, the 50/50 Community Project Capital Funding Initiative and the Kawartha Lakes Community Futures Development Corporation’s (CFDC) / FedDev Ontario’s Eastern Ontario Development Program (EODP) and many personal donations from the community. There was an overwhelming response to the group’s fundraising efforts from both the community and local businesses and organizations such as the Fenelon Museum, Fenelon Falls & District Chamber of Commerce and Kawartha Lakes Film Circuit/Films by the Falls.

While the brick building may be gone, Fenelon Theatre Marquee will once again light up the town whose name it bears bright. Join in celebrating the official switch of the lights to ON! and help to welcome an old landmark to a new landscape.
