Stateside Theatre neon sign to blaze brightly tonight

The Stateside Theatre sign, which dates back to 1935, has been restored to its former glory and will light the night sky beginning Wednesday.

 The Stateside Theatre neon blade sign in downtown Austin will shine brightly again beginning Wednesday night. The 1935 sign had gone dark until the “Ready, Set, Glow” fundraising campaign, along with a grant from the Austin Convention and Visitors Bureau, raised $62,000 to repair it.

 The sign restoration, which began in August, was handled by Todd Sanders of Austin's Roadhouse Relics.
