Monthly Event Hosted by The Folly Theater
January 30, 2002 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us as we kick off the year 2002 at one of the greatest success stories of urban renewal in downtown Kansas City – The Historic Folly Theater. Most everyone knows that after years of abuse and neglect, The Folly was destined for the wrecking ball in the 1970s. Concerned Kansas Citians (similar to members of the Urban Core Group!) rallied around to save “The Grand Old Lady of 12th Street” so that we might enjoy it today. We will gather on stage to get a glimpse of the history within these walls and marvel at the splendor and beauty of this historic theater that has become a community cornerstone. NOT TO BE MISSED! At 6:15 pm, Mayor Kay Barnes joins us to take us into the future with a brief presentation on SoLo. Please RSVP so we can prepare accordingly. Remember, there are no snow days and the show will go on no matter what the weather may bring in the next few weeks.
