A pair of banners stolen from the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis 35 years ago have found their way home, the Star Tribune reports.

According to Guthrie communications manager Seena Hodges, an anonymous man walked up to the box office Wednesday with the banners and said they were stolen, but not much else.

The red and blue yard-long banners -- each featuring the Guthrie logo -- hung outside of the old Guthrie Theater on Vineland place before they were stolen.

Hodges told the Star Tribune that the banners will probably be archived.

The return of the banners follows the Guthrie's celebration of its 50th anniversary last month, marked by a star-studded event.
