(KTTS News) – The Historic Gillioz Theatre in downtown Springfield suffered water damage after heavy rains moved through the Ozarks last week.
Water leaked through its roof in the lobby and rotunda area.
The stage and audience seating area were unaffected.
The Gillioz will be raising money to help with the repairs needed and are hoping to raise around $40,000 dollars.
The Gillioz Theatre is on the National Register of Historic Places.
The restoration of the historic Gillioz Theatre was completed in October 2006, eighty years after the original opening.
In its early years, the Gillioz was Springfield’s premier entertainment venue, hosting a number of movie premiers and vaudeville shows.
Both the lobby and auditorium have been restored to their original 1926 condition.
