Central Florida art fans can finally mark their calendars for the official opening date of the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.
The Orlando Sentinel reports that the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the downtown Orlando theater complex will be held on Nov. 6.
The celebration is expected to last several days and include an open house event and free performances reports the paper.
Construction on the $514 million center located at Orange Ave. and South St. started in 2011.
Officials say an estimated $37 million is still needed to complete the center's three venues. Only two will open in November.
The entertainment lineup still hasn't been released but is expected as soon as February.
Officials say the construction is now focused on exterior brick work and the center's canopy roof.
