Theatergoers across the country are mourning the death of an iconic movie theater marquee in California, but some are already looking to the future.
The movie theater was painted blue on Thursday as part of the memorial service for theater-going family, the San Jose Mercury News reports.
The marquee, located in San Jose, was painted with the phrase “Star Wars” in memory of theater owner and philanthropist Peter and Sharon Shults, the Mercury News reported.
The couple died at age 84.
The theater is one of several movie theaters that have been vandalized or destroyed in the past few years.
The Hollywood Sign, a landmark in Hollywood, was recently destroyed by fire.
And a small plaque in the lobby of the San Diego Union-Tribune recently was defaced with graffiti.
