Two local theaters and a museum are going to get some much-needed repairs with the help of state funding, state Sen. Joseph Griffo of Rome announced today.

Griffo has helped secure funding for Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute in Utica, the Stanley Theater in Utica and the Capitol Theatre in Rome. The money is coming from the New York State Economic Development Assistance Program.

MWPAI will receive $200,000 to help cover the cost of repairing and upgrading the outdated HVAC system in the Museum of Art building.

The Stanley will receive $200,000 to be put toward repairs for the theater’s roof, and the Capitol Theatre will receive $100,000 to help replace the theater’s failing boiler with three high-efficiency boilers.

“Cultural attractions such as the Stanley, Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute and the Capitol Theater are a major boost to the region’s economy and help to make our community a better place to live,” Griffo said in a news release. “That is why it is important that we make sure these facilities are up to date and that needed repairs are completed. This funding that I have secured will help these three facilities make those repairs and will help our region thrive.”
