Another Planet Entertainment has begun renovation of the neon blade and marquee for the Castro Theatre. Workers erected scaffolding outside the historic movie palace in mid-April.

Asked how long restoration of the lighted signage will take, gay spokesperson David Perry told the Bay Area Reporter April 19 that it was "hard to tell at this stage. Once it's all up and a thorough investigation takes place, we'll have a better idea."

For now, one of the most iconic sites in San Francisco — and a beacon for the LGBTQ community globally — is going to look a bit different.
