NEW ORLEANS, LA — I am interested to know what theatres are for sale in the New Orleans area… including Katrina damaged buildings. If you know of any theatres, I would be grateful for any information you could provide, including asking price and the name(s) of the seller/realtor.
The Joy theatre on Canal St is for sale as I beleive is the old Loews State on Canal St. You can pull up both thetares here. There is also a great documentary called No More Joy that gives the history of the theatre. It’s available through Amazon.
Did you pick up any steam with this attempt? We’re interested in doing just the same thing and I’d love to piggyback on any leads you have (that you don’t need!). Email me at
Actually… I made no progress whatsoever. I was supposed to be moving to New Orleans in October… I ended up moving to Belfast, Northern Ireland instead! I will be here for a good six months or so. I plan on resuming my search at that time.
