Construction crews continue to make headway on renovations to the Bonham Theatre. Walls are being framed, plaster work is coming along and we’ve even started testing the video boards of the new marquee. Soon the auditorium will be ready for the new theatre seats. The renovated auditorium will boast 234 seats. Be sure to stake your claim with a $250 donation and one of those seats will bear your custom inscription.
