RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The Science Museum of Virginia is renaming a theater in honor of a supporter who donated $1 million.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that the theater's new name, Ms. Barbara Thalhimer Theater, and Thalhimer's gift will be announced Wednesday.
Museum Director Richard Conti says the donation will go into a fundraising campaign and isn't directed toward a single project.
The Thahimer family has supported the museum since its beginning in 1970.
