As repairs are made to the iconic site, leaders tell us they're bringing the marquee board up to date.

A digital display will soon post messages and showtimes, versus the old snap lock system.

Officials tell us it will be like some of the technology you can find in New York City's Times Square.

They also say exterior repairs are underway for the theater but they're still working to reconfigure the inside of the building.
