The lot is 2,860 feet long, about the same height as the world’s tallest building in Dubai.

Theater opened August 22, 2003 with stadium seating, wall-to-wall screens, digital surround sound, four feet between seats, hi-back rocker chairs with retractable cup holders, three concession stands and elevator access. It has 3,700 seats in a 73,292 square-foot complex.

Rave initially considered building a theater in the Bon Carre Town Center located at the old Bon Marche Mall, while the owners of Oak Cinema 8 initially wanted to build on O'Neal Lane, with these ideas coming to fruition in the late 1990s. With Bon Carre’s purpose shifting to a technology park instead of a mixed-commercial development, Rave eyed O'Neal Lane and built their theater there.

Most of Rave’s base is from Livingston Parish, and one of the biggest issues that the theater has faced is traffic, as this theater is situated at the end of a no outlet two-lane street. The theater has compensated the lack of adjacent parking (as the parking lot stretches a far distance behind the theater) by offering shuttle service, and local policemen are usually present in the evenings to direct traffic.
