The Saenger Theatre opened on November 21, 1929, designed by Emile Weil, and operated as a movie house until the mid-1970’s. It has been restored and today operates as a venue for live performances.

The original Robert Morton theatre organ is still in the building.

This is a college town so glad to read that this MS Saenger Theatre has been restored and today operates as a venue ofr live performances (and movies?)though I wonder what the current status is due to Katrina?

Looks fine to me, but then again suppose the color photo was taken pre-Katrina!

I saw Disney’s “Song Of The South” at this old theater back in 1972. It was glorious on the big screen. I’m glad to see it’s fine after Katrina.

Remember all the fuss about “The Exorcist” in 1974?
