630 of them were unveiled on the sidewalk in front of the Grandin Theatre.
Each star represents a supporter who donated one-thousand dollars to help restore the Roanoke landmark.
130 are still up for grabs.
The Grandin's also kicking off a campaign rewarding a 250-dollar contribution with a theatre seat engraved with the donor's name.
The whole neighborhood is reaping the benefits.
Since the theatre reopened, three new restaurants have come to the area. (------------)
