It's been six long years, but the group "Save the Massac Theatre," finally owns the building they are trying to save.

The Metropolis, Illinois landmark still has a long road ahead.

Group President Lisa Gower says real work can being now that they have ownership.

She says they have big plans for the local landmark.

"You are going to start seeing things change. You're going to see people in and out of here. You are going to see work being done," said Gower.

A cost estimate for the rehab work was drafted in 2010 for $2.5 million. 

Grower is hopeful the work will be done in two years.
