 Officials of the Help Entertain and Restore Organization (HERO) announced Thursday that all the seats have been sold at the Webster Theater as part of its renovation project. HERO board member Kay Ross thanked everyone who "purchased" a theater seat as part of the fundraising effort to reopen the theater. The HERO group is within $30,000 of the original fundraising goal. Webster City chamber director Deb Brown said that there is still time to make a contribution, finish up the marquee restoration and attend the Red Carpet Affair set for next month. Refurbishing the marquee is the last major initiative to be completed before opening. Old metalwork has been removed to expose the original marquee lines and openings for neon tubing. The goal is to have the marquee switched on during the September 8  RV TV event. The grand opening of the Webster Theater is set for Saturday,September 20. The public is invited to come and see a movie in the newly redone Webster Theater. A Red Carpet Affair event will be held September 19. A complete list of the contributors will be released next week on the Webster Theater website.
