FIT FOR THE 21ST CENTURY REVITALIZED LOGAN
In partnership with Logan-Hocking School District, Larry Gerstner, Hocking Hills.com, Merchants National Bank (Formerly Citizens Bank of Logan), and other significant donors, we are bringing a community resource back to the heart of downtown Logan.
As the building was originally designed to be a live performance venue, we will be bringing back live acts as well as movies. Musicians, comedians and all performers will be treading the boards again. Just like Roy Rogers with Trigger, and Sammy Davis Jr. did back in the day!
As well as having the Movie Theater and retail stores on Main Street, we have an additional three floors. All will have elevator access, and will be fully ADA accessible. The Hocking County Children's Chorus and the Hocking Hills Dance Academy hold rehearsals and performances on the third floor, and the Logan-Hocking School District will have a base downtown for Digital Academy and community programs. In addition, the School District will be able to offer valuable skills to their students in being part of running the theater.
We will be working on the original projectors which are still in place, and also intend to offer digital projection.
This truly will be a wonderful resource we can all be proud of for now, and in the future. A great event space for movies, live productions, weddings, special events, and community gatherings; all in the heart of our downtown.
We need your support
Thus far in our renovation journey, we have revitalized the second and third floors, installed a new marquee, and are now in the demolition phase of the auditorium. With the full funding for building renovations granted from the State of Ohio, we are excited to be working towards our grand re-opening in the coming year. Although the building costs are now graciously covered, we are in need of funds for our daily operations and to support programming. The Logan Theater, Inc. is always actively fundraising in the form of grants, partnerships, and other revenue streams and need the support of everyone. We appreciate your consideration, large or small. Please consider the campaigns we have launched to help be a part of this wonderful legacy for the community.
