Work on the renovation of the Fischer Theatre in downtown Danville continues. The work includes a new roof, new windows in front and tuckpointing the brick walls. A new two-story structure is also being constructed on the south side of the Fischer which will contain new restrooms along with a staircase and a new elevator for access to the second floor. The exterior work is being funded 100 percent by Danville philanthropist Julius W. Hegeler,
Now fundraising efforts are underway for interior improvements, which include adding restrooms and an elevator. Anyone interested in donating to the interior renovations can go to the Fischer Theatre website or Facebook page.
