That's right. That marquee on the south side of the building on McKinley St.? They're taking it down.
The owner of the building is removing this marquee to put another one up on the east side of the building; the side facing the parking lot just above the entrance.
So now you will have to walk (or drive) all the way around and into the parking lot to see what is playing. I can't tell you how many times I have provoked a horn blast because I stopped to read the marquee. When in the square, just cross the street, get your info and carry on.
But now it won't be so easy.
Owner says he wants to parlay Barlow traffic with the new marquee, but I don't get it. This new sign is tucked away in the parking lot away from Barlow traffic, does he think people coming to the Barlow want to see a movie, anyway? The only people who will be able to read this thing are the people who already know what they are seeing. At the same time, they are excluding the very community who have kept them in business!
Give 'em a call and tell them what you think. It usually helps when an owner of a business is introduced to the community he serves.
