Kara Long has run historical theaters for more than 30 years. She came to Coos Bay in 2014 to run the Egyptian Theatre after it’s reopening. It was built in 1925 but had been closed in 2011 for structural issues.
I appreciate that Jordan Cove is showing good faith in investing in the community. I appreciate how everyone in the community has come together to restore and preserve this historic theatre.
Jordan Cove presented a grant to the Egyptian Theatre in support of the critical rigging project. The stunning historic backdrops have not been used since August 2016 due to the deterioration of the rigging and the grant will help keep this important community project going.
