The Queen Theatre was acquired by the Historic Downtown Bryan, Texas Association in 2010. From there, Mayor Pro Tem Ben Hardeman spearheaded the eight-year renovation bringing the majesty herself back to life!
Mayor Andrew Nelson proclaimed July 23, 2018, as Ben Hardeman Day to recognize his efforts and dedication in seeing this extensive project through. This proclamation is just one week after Mayor Pro Tem Hardeman received the Outstanding Individual Contribution award from the League of Historic American Theatres at its annual conference in Austin.
We ask you to join us in celebrating this milestone and congratulating Mayor Pro Tem Hardeman for his hard work and dedication to our community!
