The marquee of the historic Globe Theatre in downtown Los Angeles was relighted during a ceremony Tuesday night.
It reportedly was the first time in 30 years that the marquee has glowed.
The theater is on 740 S. Broadway in downtown L.A., which served as the western terminus of Route 66 until it was stretched to Santa Monica.

The Globe Theatre was built in 1913 — more than a decade before Route 66. It is scheduled to reopen later this year. Owner Erik Choi is in the middle of a $5 million renovation.
