Restoration plans are underway to salvage the historic Barron Theater marquee sign. Harsh weather conditions have worn away paint and damaged the neon tubes. Tim McFall, a retired glass bender out of Wichita, intends to remove all the old neon tubing, the fluorescent lighting, and electrical connections replacing it with all new materials. The original tubing will be preserved to use as a reference for the installation of new neon glass tubes. The entire process is expected to take several weeks.
