The transformation and restoration of this once thriving historic theater of the 1920’s to a community performing arts center of 2000 has been a process through years of hard work and numerous phases.
Myers Anderson, along with the Renaissance Committee of Rupert, continues to work together to save this community gem. The Wilson Theater is a cornerstone of the old town square. The scope of work has been completed in various phases as funds, grants, and donations have deemed possible.
The repointing and sealing of the masonry, replacement of upper level windows, the replacement of significant decorative elements that frame the facade, as well as selective demolition of the interior, structural upgrade and replacement of storefronts and transoms, and an interior renovation of the restrooms and elevator have all been completed to date.
The conference and upgraded lobby facilities are just coming to completion and will be finished in the next few months. This final and most important part of the building, the Auditorium, is just now beginning and will be restored to its original conservative but beautiful appearance with completely new sound, lighting, seats and finishes.
The community’s involvement and efforts have truly made this project move forward as they have invested in their future as well as their past.
