A nonprofit foundation is being formed to purchase, restore and reopen the historic 5,000-square-foot Muse Theatre (Also was called Perry Theatre ) in downtown Perry, Ga., reports the Macon Telegraph.
Billy Milby, of Kathleen, who is among seven people leading the effort to restore the property, said the Muse Theatre Foundation should be fully up and running in two to three months.
Much of the work needed to bring the old theater back to life is expected to be secured through grants, which are often dependent on a showing of community support through funds raised for the project, said Milby, who is president of the new organization, the paper said.
The foundation’s vice-president, Jon Pierce, told The Telegraph he used to go the Muse Theatre with his parents after lunch for a cartoon and a Western movie.
