Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Folly, originally Philip Foto’s Folly, opened in 1915 in the Algiers section of New Orleans on Opelousas Street. In its early days, the Folly presented live stage shows and vaudeville in addition to movies, as well as hosting civic events. Its theatrical days ended in the 50s, but the former Folly is wonderfully preserved and in use today as a church.

Interesting design – a long, narrow and low building – obviously all seating on one level – looks like it could have been a large ballroom originally – there are filled-in windows on the side.
