Donations Help Downtown Theatre Improvements

Lynchburg, VA - A gem of downtown Lynchburg got a good chunk of money Tuesday night for a facelift.

The Historic Downtown Theatre got $25,000 to fix up its old marquee and facade on Main Street.

The theatre got the money from a grant from Lynch's Landing. Lynch's Landing presented the check at its annual meeting Tuesday night.

The theatre on Main has sat in disrepair for decades. An unnamed private donor matched the grant. This brings the total donation to $50,000.
