After months of restoration work, the iconic Englert Theatre marquee will soon grace our building once again. Join us to celebrate this historic event!

The virtual celebration will include a recorded walkthrough showing the work that has taken place inside the building during the construction with performances from local artists interspersed. The celebration will culminate with a live performance from local musician, Elizabeth Moen and the official lighting of the marquee.

The restoration which began in March has truly been a community effort with major financial support coming from The City of Iowa City, Washington County Riverboat Foundation, CAT Grant/Enhance Iowa Funds & the recently announced State Historic Preservation tax credits from the State of Iowa, in addition to major support from longtime Englert advocates and volunteers Tom and Carol Rosenberger. Additional support came from over 550 donors who donated to the Englert’s marquee lighters campaign by sponsoring individual bulbs.

This project is a part of the Strengthen Grow Evolve Campaign. For more information about how we’re building the greatest small city for the arts, visit StrengthenGrowEvolve.org
