Margie Bailly has been running the Fargo Theatre for the last 14 years. She helped spearhead renovation projects at the theatre, and helped launch the now popular Fargo Film Festival. While she has been a leader in the arts scene, many credit her with helping keep the momentum going on downtown's new look and vitality.

Margie Bailly - Retiring: “I knew nothing about film except being a audience member and I really truly believe we needed to preserve our downtowns and our historic buildings.”

The retirement party for Margie runs until seven tonight the Fargo theatre.
