Rees Theatre soon to enter phase four of restoration project
MARSHALL COUNTY, Ind. – The Rees Theatre in Plymouth is about to undergo its final phase of restoration in its plan to become a performance center.
The historic location in downtown was established as a movie theater in the 1940s and once held 600 seats.
Now, it’s coming off of its third phase of restoration, which included stabilizing the building’s foundation and adding a new roof.
The theater went out of business in 2009 but thanks to the Rees Theatre Project, it’s being repurposed.
Soon to be restored as a performance center, the theater will have a main stage, orchestra pit, and an education and community center.
Officials say that though the building is being repurposed, it will still maintain its historic, art deco look.
Phase four of the project is planned to begin in January.
The theater is expected to be finished and open for use beginning next fall.
