For the 2014-2015 Preservation Grant, The Fox Theatre Institute (FTI) has awarded $10,000 to the Holly Theatre in Dahlonega, Ga. to allow for restoration, preservation and future planning of the beloved community theater.

Funds from the grant will focus on masonry for three sides of the building and an environmentally-conscious retrofit of Holly Theatre’s original marquee. The sign will be painted and fixed to feature new LED bulbs. The entire project will take up to eight weeks and will be completed by June 30, 2015.
