This sign was a basket case the last time I saw it.
I made those photos in 2019. The sign had deteriorated a lot since I first photographed it, in 2008. The theater behind this sign was still showing first-run movies then, but like so many small-town and neighborhood theaters, it didn’t make it.
A group got together to save the Times Theater, and oh boy, did they succeed. Check out the marquee now!
Congratulations to the group that ensured this theater would be vital in Rochester and Fulton County for another generation. Check out their Web site (here) for a terrific video of the first official lighting of this great sign.
