How to use "Marquee" in context?

A marquee (from French marque, "point or stroke indicating a boundary or limit") is aplication of a marquee to an exhibition space such as a theatre, sporting venue, or music hall. It is a temporary structure, often made of wood, canvas, or metal, used to identify and separate one part of an exhibition from another. The purpose of a marquee is to create an environment that is either more intimate or more flashy than the standard exhibition space. Marathons often sponsor large marquees as part of their race routes.
