CORNING — A day naysayers said would never come to fruition, came Saturday as Corning celebrated the grand opening of the iconic Rodgers Theatre on Solano Street. Young and old alike stood outside the doors while speakers during the brief ceremony highlighted the long-awaited event. “Thank you for all your hard work,” said Mayor Doug Hatley. “It’s been a lot of blood, sweat and tears.” Julie Zeeb – Daily NewsCorning Community Foundation Board Member J.C. Pendergraft starts the pre-movie Christmas Cartoon, a 1947 version of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, prior to the start of the movie for the grand opening Saturday of Corning’s Rodgers Theatre. Corning Community Foundation board member J.C. Pendergraft welcomed the audience, thanking the community for its support. Pendergraft played the key role of starting the films, both the short 1947 Christmas cartoon version of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and the main movie, The Santa Clause.   Julie Zeeb – Daily NewsA ribbon cutting was held Saturday for the grand opening of Corning’s Rodgers Theatre. The renovation of the building, which closed in 2006, began in earnest in 2008 with the formation of Friends of the Rodgers Theatre. Along the way the Corning Community Foundation picked up the torch, said foundation President Tony Cardenas. The city assisted through the years, asking the Friends group to raise $50,000 to show community support. Initial estimates to get the doors open was around $1 million for use as a theater, instead of the multi-purpose event venue seen Saturday, Cardenas said. Darlene Dickison, long-time city councilwoman, started the restoration project with the Friends and now serves as secretary for the foundation. She said it was a labor of love born of her family’s connection to the place and a life time of memories. “It was my dream to see this open as a theater and I was told it couldn’t be done, but we did it,” Dickison said. “The last movie I saw here was Titanic, but my sister and I used to help clean it on the weekends. My uncle worked here as a janitor. If we found money on the floor we got to keep it. The theater means so much to us because of the (family) connection.” Next up is the restoration of the marquee, which could cost between $50,000 and $100,000. The closest business able to work on neon marquees is in Sacramento, which makes work expensive. Pendergraft shares a strong connection to the theater and says he is excited to see it being put to use. “I came all the time as a kid,” said Pendergraft. “I remember growing up the one thing I always dreamed of is working here and now I’m on the board and get to help with being a volunteer here.” The facility is seeing a number of uses including classes through the Corning Recreation Department and class reunions. An open mic night has been considered and the group is looking for suggestions. “It took a long-time, but now we got what is essentially, for the most part, a brand new facility,” Pendergraft said. Delores May has lived in Corning since the 1950s and remembers bringing her children to the theater around the holidays. “I think this will be good,” May said. “I’m glad they’ll be showing movies again.” Paulyne White grew up in Corning and has many fun memories of time with her friends there. “This brings back wonderful memories of a fabulous town to grow up in,” White said. “There was a real closeness between everyone, adults and kids.” A new theater website is in the works and should be up and running soon and there is a Friends of Rodgers Theatre Facebook page where people can check for upcoming events, Cardenas said.
