Past Grant Recipient
Count Basie Theatre, Red Bank
In 2010 the historic Count Basie Theatre received a $50,000 Capital Preservation Grant from the New Jersey Cultural Trust. The grant supported a major renovation of the theatre’s façade, which is now complete.
The project replaced the faded and structurally impaired pink brick front of the theatre
with a historically appropriate façade. A refurbished marquee with energy-efficient lighting was also installed,
along with new energy-efficient windows.
The refurbished façade is now ready to greet patrons for the upcoming
fall season. The Count Basie Theatre is listed on the State and National Registers of Historic Places.
