TOURS WILL RESUME 1st SATURDAY OF THE MONTH BEGINNING APRIL 5, 2014
Brrrr! It's cold in the unheated Holly Theatre. So we're taking a short break from offering the popular Holly Theatre public tours until Spring rolls around, but be sure to visit us beginning April 5th to see what we've been up to.
Get a behind-the-scenes look at the restoration of Medford's iconic 1930 show palace. Like many movie theaters of its era, the Holly was bigger than life -- replete with ornate woodworking, a highly decorated interior, a grand neon sign and marquee, and lavish draperies and furnishings. And we're in the process of restoring the theater and giving it a second life as a concert venue and performing arts center. Learn all about it and what it will look like when completed during a fun and informative tour.
