For 87 years, the marquee has graced the facade at 116 S Main.
A unique feature in a town Viroqua’s size, it was installed in 1932 and reconditioned through a volunteer-led effort in the 1990s. The marquee is now in need of extensive repair.

The Historic Temple Theatre Marquee Restoration Project is the first in a series of renovations set to occur over the coming years. Working with Mt. Horeb, WI-based sign company Sign Art Studio, the artisans behind the newly reconstructed Orpheum Theater sign on State Street in Madison, WI, the Theatre is beginning the vitally important task of preserving the marquee, at an estimated cost of $150,000.

An icon of Viroqua, this marquee deserves our love and attention. Funds will be raised in the next year to support this undertaking. Follow Facebook & Instagram for fundraising announcements.
