A sign from the past

James Penrose of Ramsay Signs in Portland follows a neon “candlestick” sign as it is hoisted to the facade of the historic 7th Street Theatre Wednesday morning. The new sign is modeled after the theater’s original and is the product of a fundraising effort that so far has accumulated $35,000 in donations. There will be an official lighting ceremony at the marquee at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 16.
