            Despair not, all ye who once entered the Fenelon Theatre with hope. The building may be gone, but the sign will live on.

            A group of local community members is coming together to explore restoring and reinstalling the marvelous sign—a piece of

local, commercial-art history—somewhere prominent and appropriate in the village.

            Built in 1948, the Fenelon Theatre delighted local and tourist movie lovers (and just plain lovers, for that matter) for more than half a century before finally shutting down for good in the early 2000s.

            Still, the iconic—and gradually deteriorating—theatre sign remained a main-drag landmark for anyone driving through town. Until just recently, when the whole crumbling edifice was finally demolished.

            Watch for more news on the sign’s comeback as it becomes available.
