Demolished on May 24, 2010 after land purchase by Baton Rouge Safety Council for expansion of their facilities.

According to Baton Rouge’s “The Advocate,” United Artists opened this theater in December 1987, boasting 2500 seating capacity, fully automated projection booths, and Dolby stereo. In 1996, Cinemark opened a Tinseltown Theater less than a mile away and successfully lured away many of UA’s customers by offering stadium seating and matching the Siegen Theater’s ticket prices. In 1999, with the closure of a small theater nearby (Essen Cinema 6), Siegen Theater chose to screen independent and foreign films. By 2007, it was the last “traditional” theater still in operation as other theaters erected in Baton Rouge had digital sound/picture and stadium seating or had upgraded to such. On June 7, 2007, Siegen shut its doors with the last film screened being “Delta Farce” starring Larry the Cable Guy.

I saw more than 300 indy/arthouse films here from the late 90s through June 2007. Easily the best theater BR has ever had due to the sheer volume of artsy films it screened.
