ROME, N.Y. -- The Rome Capitol Arts Complex plans have been unveiled on Dominick Street.
The Capitol Arts Complex, which houses the Capitol Theatre and Cinema Capitol launched its campaign to raise millions of dollars for renovations and a replication of the 1928 marquee.
Tuesday, WKTV got a look at the plans and an update on how much has been raised.
The end goal is $5.25 million, and so far $3.75 million has been raised.
Phase one – the acquisition of three buildings to almost double the square footage of the complex is complete.
A total of $2.5 million from the city's downtown revitalization initiative fund partially funds phase two, which includes addition of performance rehearsal and exhibition space, as well as offices space and classrooms above the cinema.
The interior will be restored to the theatre's 1939 appearance.
The capitol complex offers more than 1,400 shows a year, which is on par with what was shown at the Capitol in the Golden Age.
To raise the remaining $1.5 million, pledge opportunities will go out to the public and the complex will also hold fundraisers.
