For the past 60 years, the marquee has let moviegoers know about the upcoming shows at the Artcraft Theatre in Franklin.
The interior wood and steel structure, wiring and other elements of the sign are even older, dating from the 1930s.
Finally, after so many years, the marquee is getting a fresh new look.
Work will begin in the next two weeks on repairing the sign. Though it will look the same, new electronics, revitalized red and white panels and a realigned display face will give it a clean look.
