Save the Lorraine Foundation

Founded in 2013. Located in Hoopeston, Illinois

Who We Are:

The purpose of this foundation is to save the Lorraine from further decay and deterioration. It has been a gathering spot for us and our families for decades and represents our shared history. Our memories need to be maintained, and by getting our theatre in use again, those memories will be preserved. The Lorraine will be owned by the people of the community; no corporation, no bank or other city group.
