FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Fargo Theatre officials say they don’t want their iconic marquee used in any campaigns and political ads.

KFGO radio reports that the theatre is a nonprofit organization and a spokeswoman says it must remain a politically neutral entity and cannot endorse any political candidate, or give that impression.

Emily Beck, the theatre’s executive director, has requested that all candidates and office holders refrain from using the images without permission. Beck has asked that any misuse be reported to a member of the theatre’s administrative staff.

It’s not clear what led to Beck’s release about the sign.

The marquee on Broadway was used as the backdrop by ESPN for its “College GameDay” show in 2013 and 2014.
