The sign depicted a majorette (not a cheerleader). Her baton twirled but I don’t think she ever threw it and caught it. From the neon tubing, it appears that her legs also moved. Here is a nice photo from 2007:

Some history from this website:
http://www.cityofnewiberia.com/site402.php

The Evangeline Theater started its life as a wholesale grocery building in the late nineteenth or twentieth century. Remodeled for a movie house in 1929, the building gained its current Art Deco façade and other characteristics during a 1939/40 renovation. The two story brick building’s façade is clad in stucco and pigmented structural glass.

I don’t think that address is right — or the photos in the previous two posts show a different building. The building in the photos is on Washington near Elizabeth.
