Workers begin installing a new sign atop the Orpheum Theater on State Street Wednesday.
Designed in the style of the building's original 1920's-era marquee, the new fixture features approximately 2,000 lights and weighs around 4,500 pounds.
The theater's owners plan to illuminate the sign for the first time on July 21.
