    All events are held in the G. C. Rann Auditorium on the second floor of the museum. The late G. C. Rann and his wife Maurine and the citizens of Decatur began restoration of the auditorium, and the completion of the restoration process has the auditorium a showplace.  We have a full schedule of events planned for the rest of the year.
