However, the theatre was announced in 2021 that it would be demolished, and a "pre-demolition auction" of theatre pieces and personal memorabilia was held in October 2021, and it was predicted that the deposition would take place within 60 days. Preservationists and followers saved the famous "guitar neck" in front of the theater, which is widely regarded as a historic Branson landmark, in an effort to save it.
