Rugby Lyric Theater

Rugby, North Dakota
Project Description

JLG assisted the community of Rugby, ND in envisioning the impact that a renovated theater could have on their downtown. The community purchased the theater with the idea that if they could renovate the theater, people would stay in town to watch movies, versus having to drive to Minot to take in a flick. JLG developed the renderings to gain buy-in and build excitement for the project, as well as a means to raise funds. The community was able to not only upgrade the mechanical and electrical systems with the first round of fundraising, but they were able to purchase a new digital movie projection system, making it possible to procure the latest movies, as the use of film has been discontinued by production companies.
