The Save the Lorraine Foundation, a not for profit group, was created by a group of concerned citizens in 2013 to save the 1920's Historical Lorraine Theatre from further deterioation.   In order to make this dream a reality we are in need of your financial support, to cover the costs of items such as a new furnace, central air, marquette repair, etc...We would love the Lorraine to remain a part of Hoopeston, Illinois and appreciate all the support we can get.  Check us out on FB "Save the Lorraine Foundation" or on our website "savethelorraine.com"  
Please help us in our campaign to bring the Lorriane back to her former glory days!!!

The Save the Lorraine Foundation is working on the restoration and preservation of the historic Lorraine Theatre. The outside walls of the Lorraine are in bad shape and are in need of immediate attention. Tuck-pointing (the process of repairing mortar joints in a brick wall) would restore the Lorraine to her former beauty. This is a costly venture.



We are asking YOU to help by "saving" a brick for $10 to help raise the funds for the needed work. You can buy 1, 5, 15, 100, 200 or as many bricks as you would like. All donations over $50 will be acknowledged by putting your name on a plaque that will be displayed in the Lobby of the Lorraine, and temporarily listed in the Little Lorraine.



Send donations to: Save The Lorraine, P.O Box 247 Hoopeston, IL 60942, or

donations can be given to Main Source Bank, Community Bank or Iroquois Federal in Hoopeston. Please add "Brick by Brick" to Memo For section of check or money order. Contributions can also be made at

Note "Brick by Brick" in the comment section.

For too many people, money is usually tight. But worthwhile causes are all around us. So, if you can come up with a few bucks to save a piece of history, make it so...!

I have watched many movies there over the years and my kids went there as well. I hope to return and see a movie there someday.
