Steady Hills filmed the video for "Long Grey Roads" in the Marquee while they recorded their fittingly-named EP, Alone in the Marquee. Have a look and a listen and think back to your own memorable Marquee moments (we won't judge).
If you've been champing at the bit to get yourself in that place again, help the cause along a little by sending an email, a letter or signing a petition for the space to be approved for a lounge license.
"The Marquee has applied to The Alcohol and Gaming Division of Service Nova Scotia and Municipal Relations for a lounge license (open until 2am). Our intention is to operate the new venture, to be named The Marquee Ballroom, as more of an Arts Centre than merely a typical nightclub. Our goal is to showcase quality National, International and East Coast music and to be a facility available for use by the theater, art and film communities as well as non profit organizations, local promoters and private groups.
Our license application is now being considered by the AGD and it is critical that we show public support for our application. If you feel that a venue such as The Marquee is important to the Halifax cultural community we ask that you take a moment to write the AGD expressing your support. If you live in the area please note that in your letter as the board will definitely give particular consideration to endorsements from residents.
Thanks in advance for your support!
