As we told you and told you again, the historic/still relevant Hollywood Theatre is raising money on Kickstarter to replace its decrepit circa-1970s marquee with a recreation of the original 1926 design.
Today they announced that they've exceeded their $55k goal (the total was over $60k as of this writing), which means we'll be seeing a spruced up theater on one of our main boulevards in the near future. However, feel free to keep donating. A secondary goal of $75k will keep them in light bulbs for a while, not to mention give 'em a little cushion against those old-building construction surprises.
