Theaters have a long history of utilizing some of the most iconic and memorable signage. A Watchfire LED sign can help you sell tickets and fill seats, while providing dynamic visuals that enhance historic marquees.
The newest advances in LED technology seamlessly match the look of older marquees with technology that is more energy efficient and responsive. An LED sign gives art venues and theaters the greatest flexibility to communicate effectively with their communities.
Use a digital sign to announce casting calls, thank patrons and donors, and promote scheduled events. Take set design and imagination to new heights with interior displays and video walls. Watchfire has helped to restore historic theater signage and has worked on public art installations and video walls.
“As soon as the sign went up, we had great comments. The sign is unique and the design reflects the architectural elements of the building, as well as the Yocum Institute’s logo. It is unlike any other design on a very busy traffic corridor.
— Susan Rohn
Executive Director, Yocum Institute for Arts Education
“The new marquee enhances the beauty of this historic structure while bringing real-time media to the curb.”
Embassy Theatre in Fort Wayne, Ind., opened in 1928 as a movie palace and vaudeville house. In its heyday, the theater hosted iconic stars including Perry Como, Louis Armstrong, Tony Bennett and Doris Day. The historic theater was rescued from the wrecking ball in 1972 and two decades later underwent a major renovation to bring it up to the modern standards required for national Broadway productions, concerts, cinema and educational programming.
