The 5th Avenue Theatre is excited to announce that we are one of 25 organizations in the greater Puget Sound Area in the running for a grant as a part of a program called Partners in Preservation.

The theatre lobby is decorated in the ornate fashion of Imperial Chinese architecture. Winning this voting contest will help us with restoration and preservation of the original lobby decorative painting. Since the theatre first opened in 1926 this awe-inspiring d├ęcor has faded and deteriorated from cracking plaster, water damage, and old age.

If we win, we will use the funds as a kick off to restoring the luster of the irreplaceable 5th Avenue Theatre lobby. Funds for this project will be used to hire conservation, restoration and design expert Michael Pennington. Michael and his team will repair plaster, clean painted structures, murals and architectural elements, as well as repair, match and repaint areas of the theatre lobby that require in depth restoration.

It is our hope that you will support us! The grand prize will be awarded to the organization who receives the most public votes online (just like American Idol). Voting is simple and only take a minute of your time each day. A person can vote once a day, per e-mail address. Simply click here and log in and you are one minute away from helping The 5th win the grand prize grant.
