Saenger Theatre Renovation to Begin in New Year
Basking in the afterglow of the newly-reopened Joy Theater, officials closed financing on the nearby Saenger Theatre yesterday. Partners want to complete the $50 million renovation project by 2013, and will start construction in the New Year. The Saenger was first opened in 1927 at the corner of N. Rampart St. and Canal. The theater remained active as a moviehouse until federal floodwaters silenced the screen and massive pipe organ in 2005.
Joy Spotted on Canal
The lights were bright once again on Canal Street last night, as Miss Irma Thomas flipped the switch to light the sign of the newly renovated Joy Theater sign. The Theater, which went off line in 2003, received a $5 million renovation after a group of investors bought the decades-old movie house over the summer. The new incarnation of the Joy will host music, theatre, parties and movies.
